Well hello Bartmann!

Post by Oxgirl36 » Tue Nov 12, 2019 10:19 am

On one of my fields there’s a lot of medieval pottery but occasionally a later bit turns up. For some reason a lot seems to stay pretty intact considering it gets ploughed. Wasn’t expecting to see a 17th century chunk of stoneware though.

Knew immediately it was the neck of a Bartmann jug so had a good look around really hoping to find a face, but no luck so far.

This is my piece...

It would have come from a jug just like this...

To find out more about Bartmann jugs have a read of this. They are very lovely things. Made of salt glazed stoneware they were popular in the 16-17th century. This one is likely to be early 17th century, which fits well with the village history.

I’ll keep looking to find the face :D

Finding a complete Bellarmine jug would be too much to contemplate, a section with the 'face' on it would be fantastic, so well done that lady. Are you up for finding the rest and making it a restoration product :D Very nice ::g ss47

Very highly collectible and can fetch a tidy sum if all complete . More interesting though is the fact that pieces such as this are in evidence . Hope you find the face or even better still a whole one ::g

I hope it is from a bartmann jug, but for me that is not for sure.
As far as i know there were more jugs with neck shaped like this in these colors.

Sorry for my oppinion. Still a nice find! ::g

Good job I looked at this thread to see what it was about as thought Oxgirl's typing had gone to pot and she really meant "Well Hello Batman!" :))

I will be honest and admit to not knowing about Bartmann jugs, so an interesting link.

Good luck in finding the face.

Nice find, i found a complete Bellarmine in a Victorian dump in Shrewsbury a few years back, it was only 6" high, i'v found a few plain Bellarmine shaped jugs over the years, in the 1970s they put a ring road through Kidderminster which opened up old medical cellars the construction workers had loads of early stoneware out of them i brought a 4 foot high Bellermine shaped jug off one of them it cost me £25 i sold it the same week for £40, there's a lot coming in from Germany and Holland they nearly all have repairs on them, what you need to look out for is English made Bellarmine jugs very rare and fetch a lot of money.

Learn about them! For on boot sales and so.
Original bartmann jugs are worth hundreds of pounds and more. :-O
But mind, there are many later dated ones and fakes.

If you ever find one cheap, thank Oxgirl with many hugs for her point of attention. ::g
