Landsknechte Drinking

Catalog No. 35

Pottery or stoneware, relief, 1.0L, pewter lid.

“Es giebt der edle Gerstensaft,
der Jugend Stärk dem Alter Kraft.”

(The noble barley juice gives
the young strength the old vigor.)

Landsknechte were feudal serfs used for military purposes by their masters. These “soldiers” were often traded between landowners and were, in a sense, the equivalent of modern mercenaries, with the important difference that they were not free to choose their employer.

Same model number applied to a Jug with Soldier’s Verse.
