“Munich Child with Saying”

Catalog No. 2002

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

“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.
