A Westerwald (Westerwalt) salt-glazed grey stoneware tankard (stein) with blue cobalt and purple manganese decoration. There are two bands of applied sprigs in continuous friezes around the upper and lower body, these include flowers, leaves and tiny stag figures. The main body has incised sideways heart shape motifs in a chain.

The flat base shows flash shadows from where it was stacked on three other pots in the kiln during firing. The handle is hand-pulled with a small hole in the top to allow the fixing of a pewter lid. There is a hand-inscribed number 4 near the handle on reverse side.
