A large and highly impressive antique salt glazed Bellarmine dating from the 17th or early 18th century.  The stoneware Bellarmine stands on a narrow flat round base with a tall round bulbous body with a narrow neck and ring top with a small thick loop handle applied to the side. The Bellarmine is decorated in a mottled brown salt glazed finish with textured, darker and run elements with natural firing flaws within the glaze. The Bellarmine has a pinwork number 4 just below the top and is typically not marked. A stunning and large example and wonderful piece to compliment any interior.

Provenance: Acquired from the UK Art Market.

In good condition with wear from age and use and with natural making defects to the glazed finish.

Height 45cm, Diameter 24.5cm
