Bearded Man Mug Medieval Bartmann Bellarmine style - $30.00

The Bartmann (bearded man) mug/jug, also known as a Bellarmine jug, has a long and interesting history. First made in Germany in the 16th century, the jugs (which sometimes were used as mugs) were made for 200 years, spreading across Europe and even to colonial America. This particular bearded man is quite a bit newer, having been hand thrown and sculpted by Montana artist Kate Bertin in 2012.
