The central image on this stein, called “Beim Maiwein” (With the May Wine) by the manufacturer, is taken from a poem entitled “The Trumpeter of Säckingen”, written in 1853 by Josef Viktor von Scheffel, which tells the story of the love affair between a Werner (a trumpeter) and Margaritha (a baron’s daughter).
