Jug with Soldier’s Verse

Catalog No. 35

Stoneware, relief, 1.0L, pewter lid.


(Not fearing heaven or hell, I take heads with gloating laughter.
My pike flashes to stab and thrust, the plague on all self-righteous judges.
Relying on myself alone, I care not what becomes of me in the afterworld.)

This design was copied from an actual Renaissance period piece, one of some forty-two Renaissance replicas first manufactured by Merkelbach in the early 1900s and reproduced regularly thereafter. These items were numbered 1 through 42, duplicating numbers applied to earlier Merkelbach offerings.

Same model number applied to a stein depicting Landsknechte Drinking.
