Having had a better look, I think it is by Crail Pottery.

Carol Grieve from Crail Pottery has confirmed this is by Steven Grieve and potted about ten years ago. Well done Potty, thanks to all for their input. Most Excellent

7 inch Jug, may be an early piece, as the website (above) doesn't seem to mention
tin-glazing as one of the current techniques.

Picked up this jar at auction as no-one else seemed to want it - didn’t realise what size it was but it’s HUGE, around 15in high. I’d like to know who made it - there  is a stamp, ch….. pottery? But mostly I’d love to know what it is for, and the purpose of the muslin stopper in the hole in the lid? My best guess is something fermenting, to let gases escape?

The plan is to lose the lid and house a plant in it, but I’d like to find out a bit more about it first.

By Crail Pottery in Scotland.
I guess it's a potato storage pot or their version of a Rumtopf?

Thank you - that’s so quick! Rumtopf seems possible, it’s huge but I don’t think quite potato storage huge. Now I have a maker though I might be able to track down the pattern.

Spot on Naomi, Sarah at Crail Pottery has just come back to me and said it’s a bread crock. Not sure my kitchen will accommodate such a substantial storage vessel but I will find a use for it!

My husband makes all of our bread, but it doesn’t hang around long enough to need a crock of this size 😋

An earthenware water/ coffee jug . The mark reads Crail Pottery. The Yates-Owen/Robert Fournier books gives three entries for Crail Pottery in Nethergate, Fife, All under the Grieve surname. Ironically, none of the marks matched this one. It definitely reads Crail pottery, as I double checked it!

Family of potters who set up three potteries Fife. Yours is by Stephen and Carol Grieve who set up the original Crail Pottery in 1965. Their children and their spouses set up the other two potteries: Ben and Jane Greave set up Crail Earthenware in 1996. And Sarah Mills and Ian Grieve set up Crail Ceramics in 1996

Thanks for clearing that up Naomi. It did not have a slightly older feel to it. Who uses this sort of jug nowadays?
