“Symbols of the Hanseatic League”

Catalog No. 2012

Stoneware, etched, 0.5L or 0.25L, inlaid lid.

The Hanseatic League was an amorphous federation of mercantile associations from the cities of Northern Germany and the Baltic, probably formed sometime during the 13th century. The purpose of the league was to obtain mutual security, exclusive trading rights and, wherever possible, trade monopoly. Although the League was never formally dissolved, it ceased to function in the mid-17th century as a result of changes in political and economic conditions.
