“Drinker with the Owner of Zur Linde

Catalog No. 2286

Pottery, etched, 2.6L, inlaid lid.
Alternative flat lid inlays have also been seen.

Text:
“Angetan hat’s mir dein Wein,
deiner Äuglein heller Schein,
Lindenwirtin du Junge!”

(Smitten am I with your wine,
and your eyes’ bright shine,
Linden hostess so young!)

The text on this stein is the concluding portion of the first verse 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.
