Herring

Catalog No. 1245

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, figural lid (monkey), figural handle (cat), signed “KB”.

Text:
“Der Kater laut Erfahrung, stirbt am sauren Harung.”
(According to experience, the tomcat dies from sour herring.)

To appreciate the meaning of the text, it must be understood that the tomcat (Kater) is both a German symbol and idiomatic expression for a hangover; pickled herring an alleged cure.
