Coffee- / Tea pot made of white quality porcelain with lid and golden Irminsul print.

The Irminsul (from irmin = mighty, divine, large and sul = pillar) or also Irmens pillar was an old Saxon main shrine, and will have been a large oak or wooden pillar.
Its exact location is unknown - but it was probably located near Eresburg near Obermarsber, as the formulations in the Annales regni Francorum ("Franconian Imperial Annals") suggest in 772.

Other possible locations include: a. the Externsteine ​​and the Velmerstot. The Irminsul was destroyed by the Franks at the instigation of Charlemagne in 772 during the Saxon Wars.
The Irminsul was said to symbolize the connection between heaven and earth. The monk Rudolf von Fulda, to whom we owe the only more detailed information on the Irminsul, writes about this in the Translatio s. Alexandri (chapter 3): "Truncum quoque ligni non parvae magnitudinis in altum erectum sub divo colebant, patria eum lingua Irminsul appellantes, quod Latine dicitur universalis columna, quasi sustinens omnia."

They (sc. The Saxons) also worshiped a block of wood (or tree trunk) of no small size that had been raised upwards, which they called "Irminsul" in their mother tongue - which in Latin means "all-pillar" means because it carries the universe in a way. "
A (rest) version of an Irmin column, apparently of Roman origin, is now in the German city of Hildesheim in the Hildesheim Cathedral. A reference to "the" Irminsul is unclear. Incidentally, nearby are the towns of Irminseul / Irmenseul, Segeste, the Dragon mountain and Wormstal, which could even indicate the Nibelungenlied.

Dimensions of the jug:

  • Height - with lid: approx. 18.5 cm
  • Diameter: about 12 cm
  • Capacity: approx. 1.35 liters (high-gloss quality gold print - not suitable for the dishwasher / for the microwave!)
