Description
Pale green jug with an outsplayed rim, the lip folded upwards and inwards and one side of the rim pinched inwards to form a spout, a bulbous body and slightly flattened base. The handle is round in section and joined from the rim to the shoulder. The vessel is blown but no pontil mark. The rim is tooled and the handle dropped on at the shoulder and drawn up to the rim where it ends in a double fold.
