    An antique rustic provincial French slipware jug. This type of marbled glaze is known in French as "jaspe" (jasper) or "jaspé de Savoie" and is similar to "agateware". The interior with a pale creamy yellow ochre glaze. Unglazed base.

    A jug with an extraordinary presence. Wonderfully worn with a patina of frits, chips, crazing and cracks - consistent with decades and decades of constant usage. These wares have been made over an extended period of time without changing style - but the age and usage of this jug suggests it dates to the first half of the 19th Century.
