“Schuhplattler”

Catalog No. 309

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

Text:
“A Gesangl zur Zither, a Landla dazua,
ja das kimmt oam in d’Füß und das lasst am koa Ruh.”

(A song accompanied by a Zither, a Ländler as well,
yes, that goes into your feet and that does not let you rest.)

Although the manufacturer titled this stein “Schuhplattler”, a traditional Tyrolean dance, the text speaks of another type of dance called the Ländler (Landla in Bavarian dialect), popular in Bavaria at the end of the 18th century.
