Beer Garden Scene

Catalog No. 2155

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

Text:
“Keinen Tropfen im Becher mehr,
und der Beutel schlaff und leer,
lechzend Herz und Zunge.

(No more drops in the beaker,
and the purse is slack and empty,
with a parched heart and tongue.)

Text is from the poem “Die Lindenwirtin”, written by Rudolph Baumbach in 1876 and set to music in 1878 by Franz Wilhelm Abt. The poem honors Ännchen Schumacher (1860-1935), perhaps the most famous landlady/tavern keeper in German history and a popular figure with German students.

Matches Hauber & Reuther No. 455.
