An extremely rare matching pair of large pewter wine jugs, Germany, Marburg, dated 1740.

Fantastic execution and made for a very wealthy client in c. 1740, which is engraved on the lid beneath the name of the commisioneer - JOHANNES HAAS. The jugs are stamped with a Marburg 'Feinzinnmarke' - a pewter touch mark from the city in Germany. The master given is Johann H Werlin, a meister working out of Marburg.
The jugs with a classical design and beautiful beak-like spouts. High thumbrests and drop-shaped decorative panels on the lower part.

Size: Nearly 38 cm. tall for each, making them probably the largest early pewter vessels we've handled. Weight is around 4 kilograms.

Condition: Extremely fine for these early matching jugs, beautiful metal and about as good as these can ever be.

Reff. Haedeke, Zin, Braunschweig 1963, Abb. 314.

Provenance: Private Collection of Bjørn De Roepstorff, an important Danish castle / mansion collection of Early European antiques.
