BELLARMINE Jug Stoneware Rare Antique 17th C. Greybeard


This is a very rare antique Bellarmine Stoneware Jug/ Flagon/Whiskey container from the 17th Century.

This very rare jug is made even rarer by the presence of the most likely original pewter top. Most of the pewter jug stoppers have been lost on these stoneware pieces.

This Jug is an Armorial Bellarmine A Frechen jug. These jugs were most likely named after the unpopular Cardinal Bellarmine who lived from 1542 - 1621. According to Wikipedia, he was a Roman Catholic theologian, and was a leader of the counter reformation. These jugs are salt glazed, a process whereby salt is put into a kiln during firing, where a reaction occurs, creating the glaze.

This jug features the distinctive bearded face, and a floral relief decoration below it.

This piece meaures 11" tall.
