    I came across this Whites of Utica stein depicting a lute player serenading a shy woman. What intrigues me more is the verse on the opposite side: “Wer nicht liebt Wein, Weib, und Gesang,Der bleibt ein Narr sein Lebenlang (He who loves not Wine, Women and Song Remains a fool his whole life long)” I had a hard time with it, but thanks to the internet it is attributed to Martin Luther (seems odd), but more likely Johann Voss. I have had a much harder time locating this stein anywhere. It is marked 40 on the base. Does anyone know more about this? How rare or not rare is it? Is there a Whites specialist out there? Thanks for any and all assistance on this.
