I was really excited to find this Jug in a Charity Shop. I have only seen one other in Wendy Gers “Scorched Earth” book. It is a well researched treasure of work on 100 years of south african potteries. A must if you are a collector. This jug has a mark on the lip. Shown in the pictures. I havent tried to get it off. I dont know if it is just paint or it is covering a little damage. I have decided not to try to remove it. There is a chip under the glaze which must have been done in the factory. Please dont hesitate to ask any questions.
