Rare, early Meissen Böttger stoneware coffee pot.

In Turkish form, red-brown stoneware. The exhibited round base is bulging, conically tapering, and divided by vertical profile rings. Deeply set, it has a grown, curved tube spout resembling a fish mouth. Opposite are double-curved volute handles, connected to the body by a vine step. The turban-like, embedded so-called Turkish bund cover features relief and a double disc knob. The eight-fold ribbed walling and incised decoration. Form - either Johann Jacob Irninger. H. 19.5 cm. The vessel form goes back to Islamic jug types in metal. The present type was already in the 1710 manufactory program and in the 1711 Meissen manufactory inventory as "Turkish Coffee Jugs". The Böttger "red porcelain" could be well-formed and turned, with various types of decoration. Partially, the walling was adorned with small flower relief in Chinese style or glazed black and decorated with gold painting by Martin Schnell. Compare Eberle, Cat.
