Description:

Two German Stoneware Jugs, a Raeren or Aachen, Germany, late 15th/16th century jug, and an 18th century Westerwald jug with "GR" medallion and cobalt checkerboard and star decoration, ht. to 7 1/4 in.

Literature: This lot, and others from the same collection, are illustrated and contextualized in Imagining Ichabod: My Journey Into 18th-Century America Through History, Food, and a Georgian House, by Paula Bennett (Bauer and Dean: New York, 2016). Imagining Ichabod is described as a "warm, personal account of life in an eighteenth-century house and the search for its first inhabitants... [which offers] a fascinating glimpse into [the United States'] colonial period and its years as a fledgling republic."
Estimate $300-500

The Raeren jug has a 3/4 in. restored chip/loss in the rim with an associated 2 inch hairline crack, there are also two small chips in the rim. The "GR" jug has a 1 1/4 in. tight hairline crack in the neck and a tight hairline crack in the base extending into the checkering.
