h 35.0cm. More details

Bartmann jugs owe their name to the bearded faces that were applied as decoration to the necks of these vessels. This one has a head with an unusually long split moustache and beard, with blue accents. These jugs, with or without floral decorations around the body, are a typical product of Cologne.
