Early Roemer

EARLY ROEMER

The restored ovoid bowl on this early Roemer is attached to an open stem decorated with pulled prunts. This Roemer bowl is more flared than example 40E. Unlike later Roemers there is no spiral foot only a pinched “toed” base ring. This form is closer to the Berkemeyer example 12E, which has a flared bowl. The discoloration on this early Roemer is due to the soil where it was found.
