A superb and exceptionally fine 18th-century bulbous stoneware jug, made in Westerwald, Germany. A beautiful example, with beige/grey and rich cobalt blue salt glaze. It has a fine, incised, and painted decoration of scrolls and the center holds an applied and molded roundel with the monogram GR - Georgius Rex (the cipher of King George I or II), with a finely detailed crown above it, and a winged angel underneath. The tin lid is probably the original, with a partial hallmark in the interior.

Overall good, original condition with wear consistent with age and one fine hairline crack on the neck. An exceptional piece with a beautiful presence and a lot of history that could become a real jewel of any collection.
