~ Lustig gelebt und seelig gestorben ~
Sounds like the devil didn't want to make you do this on this light relief stein made by Adolph Diesinger ca. 1900.
Lustig gelebt und seelig gestorben
das heißt dem Teufel die Rechnung verdorben.
(A life) merrily lived and spiritually died
is what the devil calls a rotten reckoning.
This verse can also be seen on the earthenware stein without lid marked with the logo of John Maresch and number 9736, ca. 1900, shown below.
