This is pretty standard basic jug in grey clay with blue brush decoration. I think the text on the bottom says hand made, and maybe a pattern number 715. Any help as to pottery etc would be appreciated.

I think this type is made in Portugal. I has a much brighter blue than the Westerwald ones

So is an homage to the style, including the stamp apparently in German, putting it politely? I had no great hope for it being a great work of art as its not exactly finely wrought, but even so!

That's £1 well/badly spent out of my educational research budget!
Thanks Naomi - it does have a rather lumpen feel about. I actually have a genuine mid century Westerwald jug, and they're worlds apart.

I think it says indeed Handarbeit, which is German for 'manual work'.

So the jury is still out, I guess. I've only known of Handarbeit, and its meaning for about 3 days!
