Catalog No. 1590

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

“Beim Saft des Gambrinus, denk’ nicht an Plus und Minus.”
(While partaking of the juice of Gambrinus, don’t think of plus and minus.)

Text reference is to Gambrinus, “the king of beer”, long a universal symbol of beer and brewing. It has been suggested that the character may be drawn from the claimed real-life inventor of hopped malt beer, Jan Primus (Johann I), a 13th-century Belgian Duke and President of the Brussels Guild of Brewers.
