Tomcat with Herring

Catalog No. 420

Pottery, figural, 0.5L.

Text:
“Wer heut ist voll ist morgen noll.”
(He who is full [of beer] today is nothing [useless] tomorrow.)

To fully appreciate the intent of this design, it must be understood that the tomcat (Kater) is both a German symbol and idiomatic expression for a hangover; pickled herring an alleged cure.

Price Range: $350-$500
