This jug is 21cm tall and feels quite heavy. The pattern looks vaguely familiar and to my uneducated eye it seems quite well made, but I can find no indication of its origins (unless the indentationss at the base of the handle are the marks).
Does anybody recognise the style or maker?
Thank you

Looks like Hook Norton Pottery but he marked his pieces. Edited to say I've come across other potters using the same style of decoration, such as Laurie Short, so may not be by Collins

Yes...I can see what you mean Naomi. i've had a 'rummage' on the net and I can see similar designed jugs attributed to Russell Collins Hook Norton. Shame there's no mark I can see but I'm now much more confident that Hook Norton is a good 'shout'.
Thank you again.
