A Brussels silver lidded jug
The silver possibly made by Rombaut Dauw
Louvain, date letter S, first half of 18th century
29,5 cm high
The purple-coloured tin-glazed faience jug, possibly made in Brussels in the 18th century, has a silver leaf-capped scroll faience handle and a flat silver lid, engraved with initials. The silver thumb rest is shaped as a scallop. The silver lid is fully marked at the reverse and displays an assay stripe at the rim.
The shape of this faience jug can be compared to German Westerwald stoneware jugs and South Netherlands pewter ones from the 18th century. Shape and decoration of this unmarked faience jug point to Brussels manufacture.
