German term or phrase: Grippe
Wie wär’s mit einem mundgeblasenen Olivenölkännchen aus der noch traditionell arbeitenden Glasbläsereien XXX und XXX, oder einem handgetöpferten Glücksbringer „Siurell“, - die landestypischen Figuren, Tiere, Windmühlen, Grippen, etc. sind alle Weiß mit grün/roter Bemalung.
