Catalogue Note

For another European style tankard see Dr. Christiaan J. A. Jorg, Interaction in Ceramics: Oriental Porcelain and Delftware (Hong Kong, 1984), pl.81 p.126. He mentions that tankards were much in demand and in order to obtain the desired form, models were sent with the orders, mostly tankards of German stoneware. This literal copy of a Westerwald stoneware is very rare.
