Tankard with the Coat of Arms of Bavaria
Southern Germany, probably Bayreuth 18th century.
Coat of arms of the Electorate of Bavaria painted in blue on the front, handle with blue line decoration. White glazed faience, pewter mountings; in the lid a medallion with a farewell scene and inscription "Ich reise fort von diesem Ort". H. 22 cm. - Glaze bumps on the handle and the rim of the mouth. - Cf. fig. A. Miller: Bayreuther Fayencen, cat. 157, with the remark on p. 114 "Da Kurbayern keine nennenswerte Fayenceproduktion aufzuweisen hatte, konkurrierten einige Manufakturen hinsichtlich des Exports von Bierkrügen mit dem bayerischen Landeswappen. Die Bayreuther Manufaktur dürfte hierbei den größten Anteil errungen haben". (Since Kurbayern had no faience production worth mentioning, some manufactories competed with each other in the export of beer mugs with the Bavarian coat of arms. The Bayreuth manufactory probably won the largest share of this).
