Recipient to pour beer
Blue colored beer pitcher with ear and spout, made from stanniferous faience. It is decorated with flowers in star shaped cartouches, which is typical for the Brussels production. This jug was made in Brussels and is part of the so called 'Vieux Bruxelles'. The peak of the production of beer jugs in Brussels was between the end of the eighteenth and mid nineteenth century, with three important workshops. This jug can not be ascribed with certainty to one of the three workshops. The Brussels faience workshops were inspired by the workshop of Boch in Luxembourg (1767 - 1836), which had a shop in Brussels since 1775.
