“Landsknecht”

Catalog No. 2104

Stoneware, etched and relief, 1.5L, 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.

Stylistic match to Nos. 2103 and 2105. See also No. 1498.

Price Range: $650-$800
