Antique Colonial German Hand Painted Earthenware Pottery Medici

  • This is an antique German hand painted earthenware pottery medicinal jug.

    I am not sure of the exact age but it looks to be more than 75 years old.

    The jug is 8 and 1/2 inches high and has a 3 inch diameter base.

    There is a hairline on either side of the mouth of the jug an there is crazing commensurate with age. The gold lettering is fading as well as the gold trim on the handle.

    The hand painted flower detail is still very vivid and this is a nice piece for a primitive type decor. I believe this was once a jug for liquor or medicinal remedy.
