Teutoburg Forest Battle Scene

Catalog No. 662

Pottery or stoneware, relief, 8.5L, pewter lid (shown without lid).

In the Battle of Teutoburg Forest (9 A.D.), an alliance of Germanic tribes ambushed and annihilated three Roman legions, resulting in a permanent halt to the expansion plans of the Roman Empire into territories east of the Rhine river.

This is a late19th century interpretation of a form that dates back to around 1550. Bearded man jugs (Bartmannkrüge) feature the face of a bearded man at the neck representing the mythical woodland Wild Man of Germanic folklore, a symbol of strength and endurance.
