Old Pottery Jug Views

I would welcome opinions as to what this was used for , the handle is very small , it would appear another arch style piece would originally been there, ( only the stumps remain ) , Pretty sure it has a good age to it , strong iridescent green glaze and about 6" High , Quite heavy, small spout .

I read about these recently, but can't remember a darn thing Big Laughter

I'll try and remember where, think was some type of Ewer.

Yes the spout sems quite distinctive , Iv'e been looking into turkish and islamic stuff since I bought more Canakkale pottery and the spout is similar , but I know zilch about the stuff as yet ., there seems to be a strong iridescent in it suggesting a high lead content , not used for a long time on these shores at least .

A 19th Century one can be seen if you google Four Pieces of French Provincial Pottery, 19th c., consisting of three gargoulettes and a jug.

Seems it's a traditional form, made since the 1500s
A 16th Century one can be found at The Metropolitain Museum of Art
http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/works-of-art/1993.25

Listed as Water jar with spout (vase bec), 15501600, France (Saintes)
Lead-glazed earthenware.


Yours looks late 19th century.

Thanks for That Naomi , that's excellent work , French is usually the first thought that comes to mind but you can never be sure , it puzzles me that a water jar would have had a lid but what do I know Shrugs at first I thought same as you 19th century , but I now really have a gut feeling that it is much much older , i have had a few 1800's pieces and this one just rings out as older ,the insides , the weight etc. It would be great to hear the views from the Brit Museum but maybe it's the french I should be asking , hope I can post an answer in the future as I love this kind of stuff , Ed.
