Man with Cat and Herring

Catalog No. 172

Porcelain, pottery or stoneware; etched (tapestry); 0.5L; pewter lid.

Text:
“Der Kater laut Erfahrung,
stirbt am sauren Harung.”

(The tomcat as experience shows,
dies of 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.

Price Range: $100-$150
