Nice shape, looks lightly thrown so could be Rye. The colour likes right for Rye. Not a shape I have seen in Farnham but there is a good fan site on Farnham you could check. You held it in your hand though. If it is thicker than it looks then I guess across the channel is a better suggested origin than closer to home.

When I looked into the green (unknown) pot I picked up I found that the green lead glaze was one of the oldest available. Looking at these links I would say continental but always worth at gander on the Farnham site. .........

Cheers. Continental does seem the most likely origin

Reminds me of this one, but it's much rougher

No, those are Aller vale, see my pieces here,

But it's such a Normandy jug shape, I would suspect SW England, eg Brannam maybe?

But Farnham is probably a good bet. Are the undersides unglazed normally?

Thinking out loud, most SW pottery is glazed underneath.
