Have you got any dimensions? The bigger the jug the more skill there is needed in making it.

It's 12 Inches tall, or slightly over. About 11 1/2 Inches wide at it's widest point. So it's huge compared to anything in my collection at least.

It looks to have some age and the handle and form look very well thought out and professional. The clay body looks unusual. Do you know what clay body it is, the image suggests porcelain, as the grain looks very fine? However, to throw porcelain would have been extremely difficult to that size and in that manner.

It's seems to be slighly grogged (fine grit) stoneware, quite a pale grey colour.

Does seem to have age, has a few firing cracks to the foot, but they are more on the surface and don't go though the pot.

Nice piece. Is it iron oxide giving it the black decoration. Have you a direct shot of the handle - it looks to be hand pulled - and its finish on the bottom
