Flagon

Germanic, late 16th c.

Pewter. Cast in two halves with vertical seams - the 16th-century way of making this form. A good "perky" look to it, with a broad base and upright neck. The handle cast in a mold normally used to produce handles for hinged lids -- this one adapted for a lidless flagon. Polished surface. Good condition, no losses or restoration.

7"h, 5" diam base
