Student Prank

Catalog No. 1829

Pottery or stoneware, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

�Vorlesung �ber Academische Freiheit von Stud. Spund.�
(Lecture on Academic Freedom from Student Spund.)
�Wo Gl�ck und Gunst nicht will, da hilft Weisheit und Kunst nicht viel.�
(Where fortune and favor don�t work, wisdom and art won�t help much.)

�Spund� (1st text string), is the German word for the bung (or plug) in a keg. In this case, use of the term as a surname [i.e., Stud(ent) Spund] is probably intended to indicate a degree of intoxication associated with the student in the central image, seen here exercising his �academic freedom� by sneaking up behind a night watchman to blow his horn.
