  2. Firstly from the shape/style. This jug has the characteristic shape of a jug of the period 1860 - 1870. Shards of this design have been found in areas in Scotland where pottery was formerly made. Similar designs have also been made in England. Jugs like this are not uncommon and feature in paintings by famous Scottish artists viz: Anne Redpath.
