Catalog No. (F29)

Pottery or stoneware, figural, 0.5L.

Text:
“Wenn man beim Bock sitzt,
dann schweigen all Sorgen.”

(If one sits with Bock,
then all sorrow is silenced.)

The ram, or Bock, is the German symbol for Bockbier, a strong dark beer that is the first drawn from the vats in the springtime.

The hexagram at the top of the central shield, often mistaken to be the Jewish Star of David, is actually a German brewing symbol seen frequently on beer steins produced through the early 20th century.
