A brown saltglazed stoneware jug. Tube neck and bulbous body with wheel-turned foot. There are also wheel-turned ribbing lines around lower neck. Flat base (slightly pushed in) which has circular shadow scar and a sliver of (sharp) ceramic from the pot it was stacked on top of in the kiln. There is no spout and the rim has been dented inwards (causing an internal split) before it was fired. Simple pulled handle. Rhineland, probably Raeren. c.1550-1600.

Small shallow chip on top of handle. Upper rim chipped (probably where another pot sat on top of it and stuck during firing). Various kiln touch scars on the body from other pots in the kiln. Long thin chip along side of handle. The neck was dented before firing (see description above). Not bad for around 450 or more years old.
