Jug


Description Provenance Credit
Description A jug such as this with a flat spherical shape set on a hollow pedestal base like a drinking flask may be called in German a "Flachkrug," (flat jug). The cobalt blue glaze--an innovation of the Raeren workshops in the 1540s--brings out the distinctive incised pattern of foliage linked by the stems, also characteristic of Raeren. The petaled flower or star motif was very popular for round vessels.
Provenance Mr. and Mrs. Fred Van Slyke [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1956, by gift.
Credit Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Fred J. van Slyke, Jr., 1956
