Scrollwork with Saying

Catalog No. 979

Pottery or stoneware, threaded relief, 3.0L, inlaid lid.

Text:
“Muthig wird bei Bier u. Wein selbst der Blöd’ u. Schwache,
und er fragt nicht, welch Gesicht ihm der Kater mache.”

(When drinking beer and wine even the stupid and weak become brave,
and he does not ask what kind of face the tomcat makes at him.)

To appreciate the text on this stein it must be understood that the tomcat (Kater) is both a German symbol and idiomatic expression for a hangover.

Price Range: $125-$175
