Object Name Jug
Description Creamware jug having an octagonal, baluster-shaped body; octagonal pedestal foot, strap handle; and triangular spout; decorated with molded panels containing figures, animals, flowers, and reeding, highlighted with green, reddish-brown, and yellow enamel.

The jug was slip-cast in a mold designed for white salt-glazed stoneware, and and is a rare example of the shift from stoneware to creamware in the Staffordshire pottery industry 1750s. Much of the detail, which would have shown well under the microspocially thin salt-glaze, is obscured by the thicker lead glaze.
