Mid 1800s German Mineral Water Stoneware Bottle

Mid 1800s German Mineral Water Stoneware Bottle

26.00

Glazed in a veil of pale peachy-pink, this tall bottle is stoneware, and likely held mineral water originally. Stoneware was commonly used through the end of the 19th century because of their low cost of production, and because stoneware shielded its contents from the sun and, thus, kept them cooler than their glass bottle counterparts. This bottle is likely of German origin, and is heavily weighted and lightly glazed. The rings at the base of its neck indicate that the piece was hand-thrown by a potter, while the beveled lip and lack of threads indicate that a cork would have been used as its stopper.
