Tankard with woman seated

Manufactory Haviland & Co. American and French
Under the technical direction of Ernest Chaplet French

Not on view

This vessel recalls sixteenth-century German salt-glazed stoneware tankards and flagons. However, the flat style of the decoration and the unmodulated use of color, particularly for the boy’s skin, are novel to the nineteenth century.
