Striped majolica jug with hare, heavily crazed glaze signed I Pat Italian?

Red earthenware with tin glaze jug 8" tall, naive style rabbit or hare creature. 1 or I PAT mark, heavy crazing and internal watermarks suggest it might be of some age. I assumed it was italian but found nothing online....

I'm confused...from wiki page on Maiolica http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maiolica
"Eventually the term came to be used when describing ceramics made in Italy, lustred or not, of tin-glazed earthenware"

Well. where do we go from here MT? To me it is tin-glazed earthenware.
Majolica is something slightly different.

Well D, I've just gone to http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/596482/tin-glazed-earthenware and it says the same thing.
"Tin-glazed earthenware, also called tin-enameled earthenware, earthenware covered with an opaque glaze that, unless colour has been added, is white. It is variously called faience, majolica, and delftware"
Semantics aside, attribution is all that concerns me Shrugs

The term 'maiolica' was used in 15th-century Italy for lustrewares imported from Spain

As a rule of thumb, maiolica is the white tin glaze seen on pottery such as delft and Italian, and modern day Aldermaston, over painted in other colours &or lustres,
where as majolica is the brightly coloured glazes seen on pottery such as Victorian Minton.

The shape of the rim looks continental to me. Maybe Spanish or italian.

Absolutely correct MT, but you're item is not what I would would class as true Majolica.

The two terms are used interchangeably in the references cited, and the classification is clearly overlapping as outlined in http://www.potters.org/subject16913.htm
"People have tried to make it a nice, tidy classification. In her book
Tin-glazed Earthenware, Daphne Carnegy says that majolica is the
lead-glazed ware, maiolica is the Italian tin-glazed ware. But the
Metropolitan Museum of Art, among many others, refers to the Italian
tin-glazed ware as majolica. So, I say it's your pick, majolica or
maiolica"
You say tomato..a definitive conclusion from the etymology will no doubt remain elusive Um...

Thanks Carlos, that makes sense...despite the crazing it's in suspiciously good condition!
