Catalog No. 1544

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid, signed �RD� (Rudy Dekker).

�Keinen Tropfen im Becher mehr,
und der Beutel schlaff u. leer,
lechzend Herz u. Zunge.
Angethan hat�s mir der Wein,
deiner �uglein heller Schein,
Lindenwirthin du junge.

(No more drops in the beaker,
and the purse is slack and empty,
with a parched heart and tongue.
Smitten am I with your wine,
and your eyes� bright shine,
Linden hostess so young.)

Text is the first verse from the poem �Die Lindenwirtin�, written by Rudolph Baumbach in 1876 and set to music in 1878 by Franz Wilhelm Abt. The poem honors �nnchen Schumacher (1860-1935), perhaps the most famous innkeeper in German history and a popular figure with German students.
