De Moolenaar.

Den.Heemel geeft, wie vangd die heeft

Staat imands Moolen wel gedraatd

En't werek van nooddriift word bedreeven

Wie deddt'er aan Genaade nits,

Naa't Eeirwig onophoud'lickGeeven. If I mis spelled anything, My apologies. Thanks in advance

The language is Dutch. The engraving is by Jan Luyken, and the poem is about De Moolenaar, or the miller. Looks like it held jam, preserves, etc.

Rubylane has a series of Delft tiles based on his engravings of various craftsmen, jobs, etc.

Windmills give it away that it is Dutch!! Unless you understand the Dutch language! I took German & it didn't look quite like that(what little I remember) someone came on & told me what my saying on German stein was so maybe they can figure out what this one is saying. Good Luck!

Funny & interesting!! I think my shoulder is 'genkeused " too!! Damaged it from carrying heavy purse strap on it- that is a great word to describe it!!I have a book somewhere in my house that I am 1/2 through reading about kids & animals on a boat after dykes(dikes) broke. This person needs a little better understanding of English language!! Reminds me of some of my foreign students & their fractured English but they do well as it is very difficult to figure out-read this book, I read a book. Same word, 2 meanings.

Sunnyca, the translation wasn't done by a human--it's computer generated.
How big is the jar?

I can't see the mark....but the bottom looks like a glass jar....how does the lid go on? Does it have sort of a rubber gasket or does it just sit on?

The Jar is 6 1/4" tall w/lid, it has a plastic gasket around the rim of the jar, the lid slides in and sits on top, the rim of the jar is 3 1/8" hope this helps

My gut says it's not old at all and was originally sold with jam or mustard in it.
