I think it's 1930's. (Base shot would help)

I've never had any luck cleaning stained crazing like this. It would be rather easy to make it worse though if your not careful.

Quite subtle for an Art Deco jug

I had a Beswick with similar staining and was a bit shocked to find it literally wiped off with an Asda wet wipe, even though the stains had formed in abd around glaze crazing. It was a matt glaze. Your marks might have stained a bit deeper if you've tried other cleaning agents though

I once had a 1920's Poole vase, it had similar dirty black cracks/crazing on the inside, to clean my piece, I used Bleach by letting it soak over night and it came up very well for me.

I'm not suggesting you do the same though.

Also to note, if you choose to try this, use the thin Bleach.

Apparently peroxide works very well, but you would need to be very careful on over-painted areas I assume.

Bleach, tried that once, trouble is it stinks afterwards, and it may eat away at the pottery.

A lot of 1920s/30s pottery has some painting or enamel on it and this
will be ruined with any cleaning substance. Also take care with lustre or Gold.
As rob says, Poole is fine, and almost always cleans up.

Put the pot in the oven on a very low heat, or maybe use a hair dryer, to evaporate
the bleach out afterwards. Crystals will form, rinse them off. Maybe repeat.

This often won't work on things like old meat plates, where the staining is caused
by fat/grease.

I've tried the bleach method on various pots before; it works sometimes but not others. I was always told that you need to soak in clean water afterwards for the same that the piece has been exposed to bleach.

If I was selling it, I really don't think that I'd go to the effort of trying to get rid of the stains. Wadeheath, like so much similar pottery, has fallen in price over the last 30-odd years and unless it's an exceptional piece, a little minor blotchy discolouration won't unduly affect the price.
