I can't find another one for to compare with , I agree Naomi a very accomplished pot , glaze is a bit like the Ewenny pig I had , but the upturned spouts remind of Devon Or somerset , the handle has a little support under it which is quite unusual and the twisted slats on the neck are really well done .

What a great puzzle jug. As others have said it looks North Devon in style and well made. Everything about it points to it being early. Its the type of thing EB Fishley would have potted although it looks earlier than him. Puzzle jugs have been around a long time and if I owned it I would be trying to get a firm attribute to how old it is. The value rockets if you can pin it down before 1800.

Good luck and keep us informed how you get on.
