ebay sellers use the word Bellarmine when selling any old saltglaze pots,presumably in the hope it will attract the rich Bellarmine collectors

One would presume that rich Bellarmine collectors would know their Bellarmines. Happy 
Bellarmine-style jug would be better description, otherwise it would be like me describing my Desimone-style Italian olive oil bottle as a Desimone olive oil bottle.

Does look close enough to be fairly sure unfortunately Surrender 

Don't worry about getting one wrong mate, I've lost count of the things I've got wrong Big Laughter 

Still an interesting piece, my guess would be continental, maybe made for the higher end tourist trade, but no idea where.

I don't think you overpaid anyway, had you bought it at the price of an early one you'd be kicking yourself a lot harder Cheeky
