The Jug stands on a slightly domed spreading foot decorated with reeding. The main body has an unusual bellied body which rises to a slender neck, with everted rim. The jug has a scroll handle and cast "sparrow beak" spout and displays the fine interior hammer marks from when it was originally raised and fashioned. This is a very fine example of its kind and is very well marked in the foot. George Greenhill Jones specialised in the production of these small items, and his work is of fine quality.
