*Early to Mid 1800's: Earthen Glazed European Stoneware Jug

I have had a lot of fun doing the research on this very old jug.Although there is still more I would like to find out I will share what I have learned so far.This antique hand turned stoneware jug has a cylinder shape with a looped handle and narrow neck.It has a wonderful old thumb print base with some chip damage.It is completely marked with many compelling clues as to it's maker and the potteries location.On the front a round seal with a crown is encircled with the words BAYERN KOENIGREIC ,which translate to Kingdom of Bavaria. In 1806, after Napoleon abolished the Roman Empire Bavaria became a kingdom until 1918.Beneath this seal are the words RAKOCZY which was the old spelling for the noble family name Rakoczi, VORMALS which translates to " From The House Of " , and the words CERER & BOLZAND KISSINC which I am clueless about at this point. On The back just below the loop handle are the potter's initials ( which is a rare addition to pieces from the same time era ) T.C. in script. I am also not sure what it once held,water,whiskey or ale but it's old world rustic appeal is marvelous! It measures 9" tall and 10" in circumference.Enjoy!
