Early Roemer

EARLY ROEMER

The restored ovoid bowl on this early Roemer is attached to an open stem decorated with pulled prunts. Unlike later Roemers there is no spiral foot only a pinched “toed” base ring. This form is close to the Berkemeyer12E, which has a flaring bowl. The bowl’s shape is the main difference in these two types.  Also see early Roemer 56E.

H: 9 cm
