�Beh�t dich Gott, es w�r so sch�n gewesen.�
(May God watch over you, it would have been so nice.)
Scene and text taken from a poem entitled �The Trumpeter of S�ckingen�, written in 1853 by Josef Viktor von Scheffel, which tells the story of a love affair between a trumpeter and a baron�s daughter. Original engraving entitled �Abschied� (Farewell) done in 1888 by Carl Schweninger (1854-1903).
This stein was part of a group produced for the Steinzeugwerke marketing consortium in which Hanke participated between 1911 and 1913. It was designated by the manufacturer as model No. �452T�, but the �T� does not appear in base markings. It is used here, as it was in Steinzeugwerke catalogs, simply to distinguish the item from an earlier Hanke product bearing the same number.
