Landsknecht with Saying”

Catalog No. 1526/595

Pottery, transfer, 1.0L, pewter lid.

Text:
“Wie schmeckt ein frischer Trunk so gut, mit einer Pfeif vereint!
Das stärkt u. kühlt, giebt frischen Muth, wenn heiß die Sonne scheint!”

(How great a fresh drink tastes, combined with a pipe!
This gives one strength and cools, as well as courage when the sun shines hot.)

A Landsknecht was a feudal serf used for military purposes by his master. 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.

Price Range: $125-$175
