A GERMAN BLACK & WHITE MORION C.1570-80

About the piece


The fortress, Aalholm Slot, was built about 1200 AD as a coastal defense to Swedens southern shore on Lollands only natural harbor. The town of Nysted grew to support it and a neighboring Franciscan cloister and flourished under its protection. With the evolution of the Danish monarchy, it became a Royal Castle under Christian II. This example is from the same group as #CG.145 above and displays the same characteristics of form and construction. It varies in that it has a narrow raised white band flanking the crescent and the stippled thickened edge is finished in the white as well. Those features are probably indicative of its use by an officer.Provenance: Aalholm Slot, the Danish Royal Castle at Nysted, Denmark
