Description
Small jug with snake handle and prominent spout, maroon glaze. There is a bearded face supporting the spout (like a Toby mug), and small masks with extensive tendrils on the sides. The handle rises above the rim of the jug and an offshoot ends in a snake's head above the mouth. The glaze is thinnest on the top arch of the handle and here there is a series of small dot holes. These holes were probably not intentional and appear to have been caused by gas bubbles. The lower end of the handle contains a loop, below which the tail lies flat against the body of the jug and is serrated.
Stamped DUNMORE, type 1 (even line) on the base. The base has little glaze, revealing the cream coloured fabric.
One old small chip on the nose of the face mask.
