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 .
