Seller: harmic.little (4,941) 100%, Location: Smyrna, Delaware, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 202313110123 An attractive bulbous form Westerwald stoneware tavern mug decorated with a profusion of tiny flower-head reliefs against a dazzling cobalt-blue ground; the finely-shaped handle with a beautiful 'scroll' terminal; Germany, Westerwald region, circa 1690 - 1710. What a stunning example of Westerwald this is! Both in terms of craftsmanship and decoration. It is beautifully potted with a bulbous body and finely detailed neck with slightly inverted rim. The fine extruded handle has multiple grooves and terminates in a nice early 'scroll' form. It is pierced at the top to accept the peg of a pewter mount. These were probably fitted at the option of the owner to keep out dust and unwanted insects, especially if drinking in the open air. The condition is generally very sound. There are a couple of small ships on the rim (photos #11 and 12) and the lower section of the handle was sometime in the past broken out and neatly stuck back (see details in photos # 9 and 11). These could easily be repaired invisibly by a good restorer. The height is 7 inches and the base diameter is 3 3/8 inches. This is a fine and very desirable early Westerwald mug and would represent a fine addition to your collection of early German stonewares or your dealer inventory. Period Westerwald tavern jugs are getting harder to find - so good luck with your final bid.
