Cats

Catalog No. 939

Pottery or stoneware, relief, 0.5L, figural inlaid lid (monkey or cat), figural handle (bear).

Text:
“’S ist besser mit Affen, mit Kater und Bären,
als allzeit mit Ochsen und Eseln verkehren.”

(It is better with monkeys, tomcats and bears,
than to operate all the time with oxen and donkeys.)

Translated without the animal symbolism, the message of the saying is that: “It is better to be a drinker and contend with the hangovers than to work hard all the time.”
