Cow teapot - Ebeling and Reuss circa 1940

Cow teapot produced in Germany for Ebeling and Reuss of Devon, Pennsylvania, circa 1940 using its Erphila tradename. Cattle are large, domesticated, bovid ungulates widely kept as livestock. Mature female cattle are called cows and mature male cattle are bulls. Young female cattle are called heifers, young male cattle are oxen or bullocks, and castrated male cattle are known as steers. Cattle are commonly raised for meat, for dairy products, and for leather. As draft animals, they pull carts and farm implements. In India, cattle are sacred animals. Small breeds such as the miniature Zebu are kept as pets. His head lifts off to fill the teapot, his tail curls up to form the handle, and the bell around his neck forms the spout.
