Antique Pottery 16thc Salt-glazed Raeren Stoneware Wine Jug. German.


Code: MS 7368


W: 4.2" (10.7 cm)H: 7" (17.8 cm)D: 4.2" (10.7 cm)

A nice survival from the late 16thc is this stoneware salt-glazed wine jug known as a Raeren...many have been found in this country as wine was imported from Germany into England in the 16thc and 17thc in stoneware jugs such as these....this one is of a lobed pot-bellied form and is decorated with panels of pressed foliate decoration and also with a "rilled" shaped very good condition with small chips on the neck and a small chip on the handle....amazing when you think of the age...!

Provenance:  Bought in Bruges from a dealer in early pottery.      German. C1570-90.
