~ Je schöner die Kneip ~
The verse makes sense to me. This is an etched Mettlach stein mold number 2090 made in 1903. It is the so-called "club stein". The German word "Kneip" refers to a local tavern, club or pub where the men of the "Dorf" (village) could meet and you know the rest.
Je schöner die Kneip,
desto schlimmer für's Weib.
Je schlimmer das Weib,
um so schöner die Kneip.
The nicer the tavern,
the worse it is for the wife.
The worse the wife,
so much nicer is the tavern.
