Cat toby jug black - Goebel circa 1940

Cat toby jug produced in a black colorway by W. Goebel Porzellanfabrik of Bavaria, Germany, circa 1940. The cat, commonly referred to as the domestic cat or house cat, is the only domesticated species in the family Felidae. Recent advances in archaeology and genetics have shown that the domestication of the cat occurred in the Near East around 7500 BC. It is commonly kept as a house pet and farm cat, but also ranges freely as a feral cat avoiding human contact. It is valued by humans for companionship and its ability to kill vermin. Note the ink "Erphila" stamp on the bottom of the jug from the US importer Ebeling and Reuss.
