Three Carousers

Catalog No. 1598

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

Text:
“Kommst du aus der Kneipe raus
bringst nen Affen mit nach Haus.”

(When you come out of the tavern
you bring a monkey home.)

To appreciate the meaning of the text it must be understood that the monkey (Affen), in Germany and elsewhere, is symbolic of excessive drinking (monkey on one’s back).
