Salt-glazed stonewares really became popular in Britain from the early 17th Century onwards. Earlier versions were imported from Germany (at Sieburg, Frechen, Westerwald, Raeren and Cologne) with the British industry picking up in the later 17th Century. They were made as jugs, bottles and pitchers in various sizes and for a variety of uses, including storage of food or drink, decanting wine and transporting goods.
