This Beautiful crackle glazed ceramic Juniper Jug or Birth Pitcher used to be filled with Juniper Gin. A traditional Dutch hard liquor called 'Jenever'.
It's shaped like the Dutch Crowned Lion and was made on the occasion of the birth of our former Dutch Queen, now Princess, Beatrix, born 31st January 1938.
Decorated with a hand-painted orange stork symbolising birth and an orange and gold crown as she was the future Queen to be. Orange because this is the royal Dutch colour.
