Catalog No. 2891

Pottery relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

�Gruss aus Bonn.�
(Greetings from Bonn.)
�Wisst ihr wo die Linde stand,
jedem Burschen wohlbekannt,
zu Godesberg am Rhein.�

(Do you know where the Linden stands,
every fellow knows well,
at Godesberg on the Rhine.)

Central image includes Bonn�s Neue Rheinbr�cke (New Rhine Bridge) constructed in 1949, as well as a depiction of the Bruckenm�nnchen (Bridgeman), a stone sculpture originally attached to the first Bonn Rhine bridge, constructed in 1898 but destroyed in 1945 by retreating Nazis. The restored sculpture can now be found in Bonn�s Bonner Stuben restaurant on Wilhelmstrasse.

Second text string is from a poem �Die Lindenwirtin�, written by Rudolph Baumbach in 1876 and set to music in 1878 by Franz Wilhelm Abt, honoring �nnchen Schumacher (1860-1935), an inkeeper in Bad Godesberg, a village on the Rhine from which Drachenfels may be viewed. Bonn�s landmark Beethoven Monument appears on the right side.
