Philosopher

Catalog No. 1406

Pottery, relief, 0.5 liter, pewter lid.

Text:
“Warum die Betrunkenen schwanken? Ganz einfach ist die Geschicht:
Das Bier erzeugt grosse Gedanken, da kriegt der Kopf ’s Uebergewicht.”

(Why do the drunks sway? The story is quite simple:
Beer makes you think big thoughts, so the head topples over.)

Central image and text are 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.
