Man with Tomcat

Catalog No. 765

Pottery, figural, 0.5L.

“Du lockst keine Katz hintern Ofen raus, so sagt mein eh’lich Schätzchen,
und ich bring ihr doch manchen Kater nach Haus von diesen Plätzen.”

(You can’t entice a cat from behind the oven, so says my honest sweetheart,
and I bring home to her indeed many tomcats from this little place.)

To appreciate the meaning of the text, it must be understood that “Kater” (tomcat) is both a German symbol and idiomatic expression for a hangover.

Note that this model number exists with both top hat and derby (more rare) lid inlays.

Price Ranges
Top Hat: $350-$500
Derby: $500-$650
