Broadly known as a Victorian relief-moulded jug. The plugged holes in the
rim are where an optional pewter lid would be fitted.

I see these described as Ridgway Bacchus jugs, but I don't have a reference.

There are some fantastic examples of inventive repairs like yours at http://blog.andrewbaseman.com/. People in the past seem to have valued stuff much more than in today's throwaway / instant gratification world.

I've got something similar from Baxter Rowley & Tams, c.1882-5. Yours has a much nicer pattern and shape though. Often see them describes as either Bisque or Parian, and salt glazed.
