Product description

Antique Westerwald (German stoneware) blue / grey salt glazed pottery ornamental jug (B)
 
A pleasing example of an antique Westerwald (German stoneware) ornamental pottery jug with characteristic blue-grey and dark blue salt glazed finish, probably dating from the 19th century (although production of this type of stoneware began in the 1600s), having a moulded pattern incorporating vines, flowers and a lion's head - the nose of which forms a loop that may once have held a ring - below the spout; the base bears the impressed number "177" together with a small incised mark (which appears to be the number "91"). Please note that there are numerous imperfections / irregularities dating from manufacture and consistent with the character and nature of the item, including glazed-over fault lines in the surface and various inconsistencies in the moulding and glaze.
 
Even though this genuine antique shows some signs of age (see condition description below) together with the imperfections already mentioned, it remains an appealing piece which would look equally good on display as an accessory in a Victorian-style interior or as a statement piece in a plainer contemporary setting - or else would make a lovely addition to a collection of Westerwald or similar items.
