Moulded jug, just over 11cm tall. Made of white clay, decorated with a multicoloured scroll pattern in trailed slip. Glazed base, with illegible incised mark.  Would I be right in thinking this is an earlyish example of Aller Vale slipware? The brown splodges on the base are definitely over the pale body.

A fair bit of the early Aller vale in white clay was unmarked in my experience.

I'm pretty sure there is an incised mark (lower edge of the 4th photo), too long to be a pattern number, but it's even less clear in real life.

If you use your imagination it could say aller.
The white clay and the thick glaze on the base is a giveaway.
