Symbols of Drunkenness

Catalog No. 430

Pottery, etched, 1.0L, pewter lid.

�Ein wahrer Zecher f�rchtet nie den Affen und das Katervieh.�
(A real drinker never fears the monkey and the tomcat.)

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, and that monkeys (Affen), in Germany and elsewhere, are symbolic of drunkenness (monkey on one�s back).
