HUGE AND EXCEPTIONAL DATED GERMAN PEWTER TANKARD, 18TH. CENTURY
The tankard of an impressive large size, measuring 32 cm. height and x 12,5 cm wide.
The tankard is finely decorated with lid and heering pattern on the handle. The thumb piece shaped as a female head.
It's inscribed on the lid with 'JÃ¼rgen Tecklenburg 1783', which is an owners engraving. The tankard looks somewhat earlier, perhaps 1730-50, but it can be more precisely dated, using the clear stamps on the handle.
Condition: Choice! Wonderful piece and looks unrepaired and with the original lid intact.
