Man with Tomcat

Catalog No. 765

Pottery, figural, 0.5L.

Text:
“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 lid inlays.

Price Range: $400-$550
