Rustic implies country pottery, items made cheaply for local use. This one is not that. The different glazes, the decoration, the extra finish would definitely imply Art/Studio pottery. It would be nice to see the jug as a whole. The pouring lip looks a little wide, and the handle looks a little high. Is a wide bellied jug? And how big is 'large'?

Thanks for the reply. The ewer is 10.5 inches high x 7 inches wide. Lovely quality piece though, would love to find more info regarding potter & pottery. I have added another picture.

I think rustic is applicable. Id call it Traditional, Provincial or Country pottery; made for use in kitchens, farms etc.

My thoughts too. Wonder what it's worth, more research and it will be listed in my shop at some point.
