Bartmann or "Bellarmine"

Rhine Valley, c.1575

Salt-glazed Stoneware. An exceptional Bartmann (with restoration.) A fine and large bearded mask, a waist band of Germanic script, six molded profile portraits and eight molded acanthus leaves. It's so good and so rare that we couldn't pass on it. It is priced at less than half of what we'd ask if it were in original condition. Restoration to neck area visible only under black light, minor rim chip.

8-1/4" tall.
