Bellarmine Jug, Germany

Bellarmines, or Beardman jugs, are highly fired, salt-glazed, stoneware jugs, made in large quantities in northern Europe from the 1500-1700s. They were used as containers for wine or beer and, as the name suggests, all are decorated with a distinctive bearded face. This particular jug was found on the seabed off Trefusis Point, near Falmouth, Cornwall, England. The jug is cracked, with a large piece missing at back, suggesting that it may have been lost from a trading vessel. TRURI : 2002.16.7
