Vintage Ale / Gin Crock Candle Holder

Certified Price





Posted on February 25, 2016.

Caramel -hued, stoneware ale, gin or genever jug from Amsterdam, ca 1920s-1940s, upcycled into distinctive candle holder. Great bar decor, gift for brewer or collector. Ship ready.


A great conversation piece, this rustic old, gin jug from Amsterdam makes a unique, upcycled candle holder or a charming addition to your decor simply on its own. Salt-glazed stoneware pottery has a pleasingly rustic texture to the touch, natural mineral spots and variations and a subtle satin finish.

The jug is marked in two places. AMSTERDAM is impressed at the jug’s base. An oval emblem is incompletely impressed at the shoulder. Within the emblem are the word ‘AMSTERDAMSCHE’ and an incomplete crest or emblem. The suggestion of a tail toward the right suggests the lion crest that makes up the historic Wynand Fockink distillery.
