Jug

The jug is complete. It is pyriform. Its wall is swollen, topped by a drooping shoulder and a narrow neck; the rim is flared and the top is domed. It rests on a pedestal, whose flat, wide base is free of glaze. The bottom is recessed and flat. The jug is fitted with a vertical handle; folded down at the top, it rests on the shoulder. The lower part of the jug is also bent down and rests on the wall, away from the shoulder. The spout is triangular in shape and is located on the neck, tapering towards its base. The spout ends in a triangular opening with a flat top. There is a blue-painted mark on the inside rim of the pedestal, resembling an L.; The decoration is molded and applied by transfer printing; it is blue in color and features the Fence motif. The molded decoration is visible on the handle and spout. Ear-shaped, with a slight lobe near its base, and oval in cross-section, the handle has a slight plateau-like bulge on its outer surface. The spout features molded mascaron decoration on the outside. Printed decoration is visible on the two opposite sides, adjoining the handle and spout: it is the same decoration on both opposite sides. The decoration consists of two distinct areas separated by a stream. The foreground area, on dry land, has as its main element a fence made of a few sections: two are straight, while the others are arranged in a zig-zag pattern. The fence sections are cross-hatched, with a small, three-lobed opening in the middle. A rock borders the fence on the right. Leafy and flowering plant stems of varying scales adjoin the fence, including a long stem extending upwards and to the left, towards the island; they are cross-hatched. The island is elongated and cross-hatched. It is topped by a hut with a domed straw roof, flanked by three trees; a lobed rock borders the island at water level. Waves made of horizontal lines strike the island and the rock. At the foot of the island stand two stylized plant groups and two small emerging rocks. Above the island fly two birds; seen in profile to the left, they follow each other, one wing pointing up and the other down. The upper part of the teapot’s spout, near the inner rim, is adorned with a small leafy stem.
