Jolly old well dressed Gentleman who looks Dutch.. Lots of digging tell us its probably from Holland as the V symbol was used extensively by Dutch potters. I bought this piece in England [ on the Isle of Wight ] and its been in my collections for over 50 years and we are deaccessioning it along with other items. With-out makers marks it is impossible to date. The jug shows lots of wear and has some dings but no cracks or serious problems. Check the photos to see the areas of concern. An important piece . 7 inches tall...8 inches deep...6 1/2 inches wide....weighs 2 lbs .61 oz.
