Westerwald blue and grey jug bearing the royal Cypher of Queen Anne, in relief, with Crown over. Cypher in the form "R.A.R." Floral ornament in relief, on incised branches. Loop handle with scroll terminal at base.
Label:The tankard on the left was produced in the Westerwald region of Germany early in the eighteenth century.
