Between the 16th and 18th centuries, German stonewares were among the most common decorated ceramics in Europe, found in households across a broad spectrum of society. The 95 pieces featured in this catalogue are mostly pitchers, jugs, bottles and tankards, salt-glazed in blues and browns. Jack Hinton's introductory essay on German stoneware as 'an art of the everyday' is followed by a photograph and detailed commentary on each exhibit.
