A Westerwald (Westerwalt) salt-glazed grey stoneware drinking jug. The neck is ribbed with purple manganese. The body has incised decoration of two tulips surrounding a circle and star with a central applied sprig ‘GR’ medallion. The handle is hand-pulled with double spike hole on top for attaching a pewter lid. Flat, slightly concave, base. The body has an incised number 6 on obverse side upper body near the handle.

The last image shows both the tiny hairline and the original potter’s finger-prints, which have been preserved below the salt glaze.

The GR medallion represents King George (Georgius Rex), probably George II (reigned from 1727-1760) but possibly George I (reigned from 1714-1727).

Made in Germany, Westerwald region circa 1730-1750, for the English export market.
