A Diesinger Character Clown
by SCI Master Steinologist Walt Vogdes

The Diesinger character steins, as exemplified by the clown seen to the right, are colorful and whimsical. Unlike many other character steins, they make little reference to drinking habits or culture, city towers, historical or religious figures, bowling or hunting. They base their appeal on lovable faces - the entertaining clowns of a circus, the neighbor holding his cat or strolling with his umbrella in hand, the butcher from the shop on the corner. They require no special explanation, they simply offer amusement.
