“Herring”

Catalog No. 1296

Pottery, figural, 0.5L (circa 1980)
Edition: 5,000.

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 the alleged cure.

This stein is a reproduction of Merkelbach model No. 1152.

Price Range: $40-$60
