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

16th Century
