Named after the famous artist Hans Holbein who lived throughout the early part of the 16th Century, during which he painted many pictures for King Henry VIII and Thomas more. One of which was a sketch of Thomas More's family. In this sketch if you look to the right hand side, near the window you will spot a jug. An exact replica of this jug was made for Hampton Court Palace and thus named the Holbein Wine Jug.
To celebrate the 500th anniversary of King Henry VIII Accession to the throne, this pewter jug was commissioned by Hampton Court Palace, to be displayed on the top table in the great hall where King Henry VIII would have sat. This is an extremly unique item, and there will only be a few made worldwide. For the person that has everything, you dont have one of these.
Please note that this pewter jug may take up to two weeks delivery. This is due to the pewter jug being highly labour intensive and having to be hand made from start to finish, from Bronze moulds dating as far back as 1710.
