Catalog No. 3344/550

Stoneware, Bavaria-type (six-sided), 0.5L, inlaid lid.

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!)

First in a set of three, with Nos. 3344/551 and 3344/552.

The text on this stein is the concluding three lines 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.

Price Range: $400-$550
