Landsknecht and Woman

Catalog No. 953

Pottery or stoneware, relief, 0.5L, pewter or inlaid lid.

A Landsknecht was a feudal serf used for military purposes by his master. These “soldiers” were often traded between landowners and were, in a sense, the equivalent of modern mercenaries, with the important difference that they were not free to choose their employer.

Some examples, including the one shown here, exist with a relief lid inlay bearing the trade mark of the Keeley Brewing Company, which operated in Chicago, IL between 1878 and 1920.
