These are usually described as Ale Tankards... Bulbous body and the small foot rim which is usually the same dia as the mouth.
It has an incised 6 type number near the back of the handle. The handle has a couple of holes in it at the top curve.. These are fairly common too on this type of pottery. There is a small crack at the base looking from the bottom...
Which runs up the back towards the base of the handle.. Nearly to the incised 6... And on the front design just to the left of the GR is a small area where the blue glaze has chipped off from the circles design.
