Second mark may be Abuja

The jug has what appears to be two glazes on the surface; a grey glaze, and a tenmoku brown(without the darker breaks). I have made similar colour glazes to the grey glaze in the past with ash from my coal-fired boiler. Mine was coarser because I didn't strain it as well as they have but it was exactly that shade.

Helps to have a photo of the base. Abuja bases are very distinctive

I have had a couple of Abuja in the past and the bases looked like chocolate, very dark clay. The second mark you have on this jug after the T.A does look them.

There is often a circle of glaze on the slightly concave bases of Abuja pots. This base looks less concave but there is a trace of glaze in the middle. I think it's right for Abuja. The bluish glaze over the brown glaze is also similar to Abuja

This is definitely a keeper then. Apart from the Abuja connection it is a thoroughly sound piece of work. The spout pours well, the neck is wide enough to get your hand in to clean it properly and it holds a sensible amount of milk for early morning tea-for-two. It is well thrown and even in the body, well glazed in a subtle mix of colours and has no damage.
I will continue to look for the potter on the Abuja sites although I have had no luck yet. Whoever made it was well-practiced and confident: it is an understated little gem, and I thank them.

It's not a typical Abuja base but the second mark plus the shape look right. I don't know the potter's mark.
