    I was lucky enough to recently buy the stein illustrating the saying Full den krug! Oft genug on this site (the full color version): http://stein-collectors.org/library/TranslationsIllustrated/F/Full_den_Krug_Oft_genug/trans-r1.html
    I was interested in Gnomes and hallucinogenic mushrooms because of another, rather strange stein in my collection, Santa’s Dorf, which had led me to research the connection between the Norwegian myths of Gnomes (under one name or another) and the red, white-spotted mushrooms and the Pagan holidays that eventually turned into Santa and his reindeer etc.

    So, I would like to hear what anyone has to say on this subject, in particular its appearance on steins, classical and modern.
