Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The hard paste porcelain in which this jug is fashioned is a unusual medium for an early English factory to have used, the majority of English firms' porcelain output being of a soft paste.
A lead-glaze has been used. The jug has a circular pedestal foot and a loop handle tapered out at the top to provide a thumb rest.
The interior decoration are four pendant scrolls and four of flowers and leaves. The reserved exterior decoration is of eight small scattered springs in purple and a purple design to the handle exterior.
A similar example is held in the V&A porcelain collection,accession number c.88-1966
