Catalog No. 1976
Pottery, etched, 0.4L, inlaid lid.
“Hast du Kater, ist mein Rath,
trinke früh sowie du spat.”
(If you have a hangover, here’s my advice,
drink in the morning what you drank late at night.)
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.
The hexagram on the lid, often mistaken to be the Jewish Star of David, is actually a German brewing symbol seen frequently on beer steins through produced the early 20th century.
Price Range: $200-$300
