M020 Antique Late 18th Century Creamware Masonic Tankard Dutch Interest Oranje
M020 ANTIQUE LATE 18TH CENTURY CREAMWARE MASONIC TANKARD DUTCH INTEREST ORANJE. An antique late 18th century creamware tankard decorated with a large Masonic panel containing various signals and devices. To the top of the jug is “Oranje Boven” (Orange Above) painted in red enamel. “Orange above” refers to the Dutch tricolor orange-white-blue, which originated around 1630, during the Eighty Years’ War with Spain. Before 1630 the Dutch rebels, the watergeuzen , had a flag with horizontal orange-white-blue stripes (the Princes flag). The battle cry “Orange above” of the water giants refers to both the flag and their leader, Prince William of Orange. In addition to orange, the flag was given the royal blue color of the Nassau family. The Dutch tricolor became a symbol of freedom and remained so when the color orange of the flag later changed to red. That is why the Dutch population can wear the orange penny above the national flag on public holidays. Measures 14.5cm 5 5/8 tall. Weight n/a (measurements and weights where specified are approximate). One hairline running 5.5cm down the exterior (from rim) and continuing near the bottom on the interior. Discrete short hairline to lower body. Two filled chips to base. Please gauge condition using photos provided. Please scroll down for more photos and information.
