A heavy indigo water jug with internal ribbing. Polished pontil, and foot-rim. Any ideas on the mark?
Just guessing Scandanavian.

I suspect it is B 684, if so an item designed by Ellis Bergh and made by Kosta (Sweden), possibly as far back as the late 1930s. Bergh was the chief designer at Kosta from around 1929 to 1950.

Thanks Jo, I don't think it's a B. Either X/, XY, or I. The numbers could be any of
186, 184, 686, 684, but thanks for some clues.

Not that many of them do look like a B. I have seen many like this. Another point to note is all the other characteristics are spot on especially the optic rib (favoured by Bergh) and the deco-ish shape.
