Merkelbach and Wick Jugendstil Stein

From the collection of Jacob Lance Heath

“Bleib mir mit der liebe Ferne. Ich hab mein Krügl viel zu gerne.” (Love) stay far away from me. I like my stein (of beer) much too much.

jugendstil (youth style/modern art) stein, ca. early 1900's. The first line of the verse can be interpreted in several ways, but with the picture on the stein showing a man seemingly wanting nothing to do with cupid's offer of love, the translation above seems most appropriate.
