Quite an unusual piece of art.
Appears to be a "sculpture" of a jug. It is cast iron or steel, formed to a jug shape and welded together.
It has a welded on re-bar handle.
The design in the steel is that of evergreen branches.
There is an opening at the top and the "jug" does hold liquid.
Like nothing you have seen.
3 7/8" diameter base.
Weight is 4 lbs. 3 ounces.
