“Munich Child with Saying”

Catalog No. 2002

Pottery, etched, 1.0L or 0.5L, inlaid lid.
Design attributed to O. Hupp.

Text:
“Wer nie mit einer vollen Maass auf einem Münchner Keller sass,
der weiss nicht was vor anderen Völkern der Liebe Gott Bayern gab.”

(He who has never sat in a Munich cellar with a full liter of beer,
doesn’t know what God gave to Bavarians in preference to other people.)

Created as the coat-of-arms or archival seal of Munich in 1239, the centrally depicted Münchner Kindl (Munich Child) has evolved from a hooded monk standing in front of Munich’s gate to a charming child and symbol of the city.
