description

A blue & white German faience Enghalskrug (beersteins) hand painted in Chinese taste with a pewter lid. This piece is a very naively painted stein with two people with trees and a rock formation. As these pieces were dipped in a tin glaze and then painted over the top of the wet glaze, the painter had to know what he/she was doing. A simple mistake would mean no corrections. Fitted with a complex pewter lid. c1740/50

 

Condition : The jug has several cracks and a few small chips under the lid. The lid has some damage to the thumb. I have not cleaned this piece and is sold as is.

Size : 21cm high

Price. Sfr.120.00
