Jug

1764 British Jug at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - From the curators' comments: "Big harvest jugs were a speciality of the potteries in the Barnstaple-Bideford area in north Devon. Traditionally, cider was brought out to thirsty harvesters in the fields. A compass design was often incised through the white clay slip of these jugs. This reflects the maritime importance of these West Country towns."
