See Early Stoneware Steins from the Les Paul Collection by Beatrix Adler and Les Paul;

Additional Information: A Doulton Lambeth salt glazed stoneware double XX Toby on
barrel jug, modelled straddling a barrel poring beer from a jug. The pouring spout forms
part of his tri-corn hat; his hair forming the handle with a tied bow terminal. The jug has
various marks to the base including a Doulton Lambeth mark along with impressed
mark: MANUFACTURED FOR PHILLIPS OXFORD ST LONDON and a registration
The dancing couples on this jug are after seven pairs depicted in Hans Sebald Beham’s
Peasants’ Feast print. This brown salt glaze color was experimental…produced by Raeren
potters attempting to produce wares that were sharp and crisp by adjusting kiln
temperature and oxygen levels. This krug would have been called “fehlbrand” …failed
brand. The attempt to maintain consistent temperature and oxygen was not consistent,
therefore producing differing results. Likely, they were sold at a discounted price
The height is 8 7/8” to thumbpiece; height to rim: 7 5/8”. The pewter lid is period
however, likely the second lid; small chip to rim and underside of base, else fine.
A large spherical jug with incised cylindrical neck having manganese glaze; the body incised and decorated in cobalt with central applied “G.R.” medallion in relief. See Steinzeug, Kunstgewerbemuseum Der Stadt Koln, Koln 1986; page 345, plate 545.
(The jug remains in fine original condition; pewter lid with touch-marks is an early working period replacement.)
The surface is orange brown, white pearl decoration, and other applied molded ornament; cobalt blue enamel painting, salt-glazed and pewter mounted. The interior of pewter lid displays maker’s marks dated 1708. See pages 44 to 59 of Early Stoneware Steins from the Les Paul Collection pp. 44 to 59. Height: 8.75"
The white high density clay was found in Germany, France and small areas of England at that time.
This wonderfully potted piece displays a single ting chip on edge of rim with all else being excellent. (Dimensions: 6.5" H.)
