    Hi dear Members,

    I bought today a ceramic bottle, what I thought it was at first, just because I liked the bearded man:smuggrin:.
    Lately I read that it is actually the Bellarmine Jug and that it has quite a deep history, which is really cool (still like to learn something new:shame:)
    The sticker at the base says "salt glaze genuine pottery free of lead and cadmium".

    So, could someone please help me in identifying when it was made and probably where?
    I thought, maybe it could be Westerwald pottery, as colours look similar? But really I'm not sure... IMG_8288 Large.jpeg

    It is very nice Westerwald. I saw this style emerging in the 1970s-80s, so I guess that is the period.
    I always love bellarmines.

    Echte Töpferarbeit means it is hand made pottery. A "Töpfer" is a potter. The Töpfer did a good job.;)

    Thank You for correct translating:shame: "hand made" is always good!
