Catalog No. 139

Pottery or stoneware, relief, 1.0L, pewter lid.
Found in two different versions.

Version 1
“Keinen Tropfen im Becher mehr und der Beutel schlaff u. leer.”
(No more drops in the beaker and the purse is slack and empty.)

Version 2
“Es vertrinkt der Wanderknab’ Mantel, Hut u. Wanderstab, sprich betrübt: ‘Ich scheide.
Fahre wohl du kühler Trank, Lindenwirtin jung u. schlank, schönste Augenweide!”

(The wondering lad drank away coat, hat, and walking staff, sadly saying, “I’m leaving.
Farewell you cool drink, Linden hostess young and slender, a lovely feast for the eyes!”)

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