Jug with Biblical Image

Catalog No. 28

Stoneware, relief, 0.75L, pewter lid.

The central scene on this jug is taken from the Bible’s first Book of Samuel and depicts the anointing of David as King of the Israelites (1 Samuel 16).

This design was copied from an actual Renaissance period piece, one of some forty-two Renaissance replicas first manufactured by Merkelbach in the early 1900s and reproduced regularly thereafter. These items were numbered 1 through 42, duplicating numbers applied to earlier Merkelbach offerings.

Price Range: $125-$175
