Jug


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description The chocolate-brown body and brightly colored enamel palmettes on this jug are typical of the mid-1600s stoneware designed in Annaberg. The textured panels of "scales" surrounded by borders of "plaiting" are characteristic. The German name for this shape is "Birnkrug," meaning "pear jug." The gilding of the plaiting and use of silver for the lid lend this piece a higher status and suggest a commission.
