description

This German tin-glazed Hanau Delft Beerstein is hand-decorated in an underglaze blue, tin-glazed. The scene in Chinese taste fills then the entire area and looks still fresh to the eye, Chinese scenes were in high demand as the fashion followed the porcelain market. There are two different scenes of scholars depicted on the reverse side with water being dominant. The neck has what looks like tobacco leaves with a flower. The pewter lid is engraved with the letters I.G

 

Condition: Usual wear to this type of Faience. There is a crack on the upper part of the handle. A few nibbles under the lid. The Jug is sound and water tight (or should I say beer )

Size : 22,5cm high

Price: Sfr.440.00
