Last week, I embarked on an epic road trip to Berlin. I as thrilled when walking past a junk shop in Muggelsee, I spotted two of these salt glazed wood fired bottles.
Last time I visited Berlin, I bought a similar one at a flea market, so was thrilled to pick these up. Made around 1900, they were used to hold either beer or water. They have been thrown on a wheel and even bear the potter’s fingerprint at the neck!
