This is a rare original antique (mid to late 19th century) stoneware jug with rich salt glaze, bold cobalt blue scrolled vine pattern on the front, and what appears to be 3.7 (probably Liters) in cobalt near the handle. I don't know what this might have been used for, but it is similar in size and shape to a seltzer or water jug and is probably from western Europe.
There are two tiny chips on the front bottom edge and one faint hairline along the bottom of the handle where it attaches to the jug, but it does not appear to go through and is filled with glaze, so it probably happened in the factory. This is a stunning and unusual piece that displays beautifully! The item "Antique 19th c 3.7L Stoneware Water Seltzer Jug, Salt Glaze, Cobalt Scroll Vine" is in sale since Monday, November 25, 2019.
