Important "Sternkanne". Westerwald. 3rd quarter 17th century.

An important "Sternkanne" (or "star jug") in grey salt glazed stoneware decorated with blue and manganese. The bulbous body is decorated in relief with a large ten-pointed star, each of the points containing a bee. The center of the star has a quatrefoil with a lion's head in the middle. The neck of the jug with slightly protruding spout shows a stylized lion mask. The sides are decorated with seven horizontal diamond shapes placed one above the other, each containing a lion's head in relief. The back of the jug has a star motif with bees, the middle of star is left plain with a center point. Original ribbed handle with curl. The jug has its original pewter lid with thumb rest.

This jug is a very rare, unpublished variant of the classic "Sternkanne", and of extremely high quality.
