Museum quality reference objects of Creussen saltglazed stoneware

The art of creating saltglazed stoneware drinking vessels with enamel decoration in bright colours was at it’s artistical hight in Creussen Frankonia (Bavaria) during the 17th century. Particularly characteristic of the stoneware objects of the golden age at Creussen is the colourful relief decoration depicting elector/electress, coat of arms, apostle, planet and hunting scenery. Elaborate and precious mountings emphasise the high esteem in which such vessels were held, which probably served representative purposes.
