~ So muß mann seinen ~
The verse and scene are a comical take off on the Biblical (Matthew 5:44) teaching that one should love his enemies. The stein is a late 1800's version of a Schrezheim Faience Walzenkrug (cylidrical stein).
So muß mann seinen
Feinden gutes thun -
Thus one must to his
enemies do good things.
