17th Century Stoneware Bellarmine, Probably German, Frechen, 1660-80


17th Century Stoneware Bellarmine,

Probably German, Frechen,

1660-80


German “bearded man” stoneware jugs are known to have been used in seventeenth-century America. Stoneware is fired at a higher temperature than earthenware—hot enough to make the clay vitrify, or change into a glasslike substance—resulting in a nonporous ceramic body thus, stoneware jugs made ideal long-term storage containers.


Dimensions: 8 1/4 inches x 5 inches x 5 inches
