Barley and Hops with Saying

Catalog No. 332

Pottery or stoneware, relief, 1.0L, pewter lid.

�Gott hat den Durst erschaffen,
der Teufel den Kater und Affen.�

(God has created thirst,
the devil the tomcats and monkeys.)

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).
