I found this at our local market, Southworks in Cambridge Ont. I have been collecting for 50 years and this is the first one I have found to buy. It was described as a face vase but in fact it is a Bellarmine or Bartmann Jug from Germany. These jugs were used from 1650's to the mid 1700's. It is in amazing condition with only a small firing spot.

Is it legit? Jamestowne pottery reproduction were produced in 1978. I am not an expert with these. I do like it though.

The base looks unusual for an original as they normally taper down without the bulge (although some bases are like this ) and typically chip around the edges. Is the bottom wire cut or plain.

The faces and handle are applied after the jug is made, if I'm not mistaken.
