Of exceptionally large size, this tin glazed tankard is German, likely Nuremberg from the mark on the base, and is mounted in pewter, also marked on the interior of the lid. Measuring 11" high, it is very well painted with foliate designs surrounding a medallion or crest depicting a scene of buildings. Over a slip of grayish white, the decoration is done in varying shades of blue, green, yellow, and orange, with magenta or black outlines. In very good condition, with wear to the glaze on the handle, and a fine hairline about 2" long from the top, through a section of the foliate design (close up image included). Please note, in some of the images the blue color has a tint of turquoise, but it is a clear blue, and the other colors are all bright and crisp. This is a fine example of tin glazed wares of the 17th and 18th centuries in Europe, with rich color, scale, and design.
