“Herring”

Catalog No. 1152

Pottery, figural, 0.5L.

Text:
“Den größten Kater lehrt Erfahrung, bezwingt ein guter sauer Harung.”
(The biggest tomcat experience teaches, is defeated by a good sour Herring.)

To appreciate the text on this stein it must be understood that the tomcat (Kater) is both a German symbol and idiomatic expression for a hangover; pickled herring an alleged cure.

This stein was reproduced by Merkelbach throughout the history of the company and by Thewalt, circa 1990, as model No. 1296.

Price Range: $200-$300
