Make an inquiry

A fine antique pewter  spouted flagon, or so called “Stegkanne”.

Marked on the round lid with the pewter hallmark for :

Kaspar Michel Stadelin – Zug , circa 1800

Worked from 1796 till 1820 in Zug, a city between Zurich & Luzern 

The word “ Steg ” is the name for the connection between the flagon and the long spout.

It is more than probable that these Swiss forms were inspired by the Dutch example the

“ Frans Hals “ flagon.( Jan Steen kan), which reached Switzerland via the  River Rhine .
