"In Sichtweite des Resche Hennerich schuf der Bildhauer Fritz Berlin eine weitere schöne Plastik. Marktfrau und Schutzmann heißt diese Alltagsszene aus der Zeit, als die Obrigkeit, also ein Polizist noch Pickelhauben trug und Schutzmann hieß. In Koblenzer Quellen heißt es zu der Maatfrau, dass es sich hier um „dat Blemersch Klär“, also Blumen Kläre, handeln soll, die vom Blumenverkauf lebte und das Geld oftmals für Alkohol ausgab. Blemersch Klär war die Großmutter vom ‚Resche Hennerisch. Landete ihr Enkel wegen seiner Streiche schon mal in den städtischen Knast, so war dat Blemersch Klär des öfteren zur Ausnüchterung in der Zelle!"
