Hallo all.

The colours in this hand-painted jug are delightful. The ceramic itself is 'pitted' in places but there is no damage. 6" tall.
I'm unable to find any mark; so does anybody please recognise the style/maker?

Thank you
Jack

It’s lovely. Looks like something antique French tin glaze like Quimper pottery.
Very pretty and in nice condition too.

Thank you Ben,
That's interesting. I've had a good look at many Quimper jugs and I can certainly see what you mean re the similarity. So French may be a good bet. However, so far I haven't found a single Quimper jug which isn't marked with the Quimper name...but I'll keep looking.

Well it's certainly tin-glazed faience, but very crudely decorated, It could be French.

French or Spanish imo, although Italian and Portuguese is also possible. Traditional provincial pottery, still being made.

Thank you Denbydump and Naomi.
I did think, when I first saw this jug, that it may well be a tourist piece.
For my education, can you tell me how you recognise something as being tin-glazed?
Thanks

Thick white glaze on an earthenware body that chips quite easily.

Tin oxide based glaze over a darker earthenware , Also called Italian maiolica (as opposed to majolica which is the colourful one), Delftware and French faience.
