Yellow ware jug, c.1830

This mochaware/yellow ware jug has certainly seen better days. It has survived almost 200 years somewhat intact but bears the scars of neglect, including cracks, chips, a worn base, and the complete loss of its original handle

It is modestly decorated with simple white and green glazed incised bands and scattered brown leaf sprigs

Jug measures 5-1/2″ tall and is marked “3A3” on the bottom. The original applied handle was repaired¬†with tin replacement around 100 years ago

The applied handle on this intact yellow ware jug gives an idea of what my sad jug’s original handle may have looked like
