"Westerwald Stoneware" usually refers to salt-glazed pottery emanating from an area
east of the Rhine River in the south-west region of the Westerwald, Germany.
Stoneware jugs, tankards and the like have been produced in that region since the 14th century.

However, the "Golden Age" of stoneware was the 17th century.
In the mid-17th century, both cobalt blue and manganese reddish decorations were added
to the blue-grey salt-glazed stoneware, often moulded and stamped with dies.

These popular stonewares were traded up the Rhine River into the Low Countries, and also into England.

During the late 17th century and throughout the 18th century,
crowned initials of English monarchs were made for export to British markets.
