Bold and beautiful Art Nouveau wine or beer jug made by the well-known Orivit workshop in Cologne, Germany circa 1904. The tall pewter jug has a finely detailed eagle upon its front. The beak-form front of its hinged cover opens to offer a pouring lip. The wide base has undulating peacock-feather forms in relief. Photo of an example is pictured in "Orivit, Zinn des Jugendstils aus Koln," an early Orivit catalogue, page 100. 13 1/2" H.
