Festive Outdoor Scene

Catalog No. 1553

Pottery, etched, 0.5L, inlaid lid.

�Wer rennt u. w�hlt, mit Geld nur klingt
und stehend nur sein� Schoppen trinkt
den treff des Wortes Vollgewicht
Ruh� ist die erste B�rgerpflicht.�

(He who runs and agitates, with coins only clinking
and drinks his pint standing up,
may the full meaning of the saying hit him:
Tranquility is every citizen�s first duty.)

Central image is taken from an illustration by Heinrich Schlitt (1849-1923), part of an 1890 mural that once graced the Wiesbaden Ratskeller, but was sadly destroyed in World War II.
