LUCIFER Brass Jug "God & Light" 1625

A most unusual old solid and heavy (1.5 kilos) brass Jug with the Devils Head as the pourer spout and with Latin engravings... DEUS ET LUX NVS and a date for 1625. The jug is 8" high and 4" in diameter.It has XII impressed on one of the feet and also on the inside of the small lid. Whether the jug actually dates to 1625 I can't confirm but certainly it is a very old piece....the smoothness of the brass and the wear to the engraving work shows that it has been handled and polished over many,many, years.We have discussed the likelihood that this piece is possibly an old copy of an actual antiquity.
