Gnomes on a Barrel

Catalog No. 1256

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

Text:
“Brüderchen, ergo bibamus.”
(Brothers, therefore let us drink.)

Central image is taken from an illustration by Kaspar Kögler (1838-1923), part of an 1890 mural that once graced the Wiesbaden Ratskeller, but was sadly destroyed in World War II.

Text is from a poem entitled “Ergo Bibamus”, written by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in 1810 and set to music in 1813 by Max Eberwein.

Same model number also found on a special order version that replaces the standard central image with Polish text (below right — deduct 25%).
