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).
