Harvest jug

We do not know who made this harvest jug but it was donated to RAMM in 1928. It is in the North Devon tradition and was probably made in Bideford. It is made from earthenware. the decorations are scratched through a thin layer of slip (thin clay) to reveal the body colour beneath. A lot of slip has been carefully scratched away to make these flower patterns on a brown background. You can see the multiple curving petals which resemble crysanthemum flowers.
