Well made jug with an interesting handle. There is an an incised name on the base, Porth Pottery with initials underneath. There is a Porth in both Cornwall and Wales.
Does anyone know which one this is?

Height: 9.5cm

Lovely jug. Not heard of the pottery before, but the green glaze reminds me of Dunster. I wonder if there's a link?

Well, I think on balance probably Cornwall. I live close to porth, and don't know of a current pottery, but have found several pieces locally. So probably unlikely to be a co incidence.
