I think it could be 19thC but aside from a few names like Buckley and Donyatt I don't know much about this sort of pottery

Think the age is right (19th c), obviously the green felt got added later on the base. Not sure these got marked that often. Its a functional locally produced jug for buying your spirits from a brewery, looks to be the wrong shape for beer but gin or wine are a possibility. They are and were very common household item in our part of Europe in the 19th century. I love this type of pottery but they hold little value. My advice Peterart is to use it, you will be surprised how many people comment on how nice it is when you serve a drink from it to them. Corks are easy to get and it is all it would have had. Of course you could also horrify yourself by selling it for 2 on eBay but I would pick the first option.
