Recommended Posts

31mm thin silver.
NANERL WAS BRINGST DU MIR. (Nanerl what bringst you to me)
Exe. EW. HOCHW. LEIB SPEISE. (Your Reverend's favourite food/dish)
Not sure what this is but have seen a silver lid, on a German 19th century tobacco pipe, with the same inscription & an almost identical scene. I am not sure if there is an innuendo in the inscription but the serving-girl is showing quite a lot of leg, amongst other things.
I am hoping someone will know more about this.

Maybe it's my dirty mind but the mark on the reverend's lap suggests what you suggested.
