This is a most unusual and large mid-century Scottish stoneware jug.
It was made by Buchan Pottery, Portobello (just outside of Edinburgh), and dates to the 1950s. The factory was at Portobello - and the pottery kilns are still preserved today as local landmarks. There is a fine display on the history of the Buchan Pottery at the Museum of Edinburgh on the Royal Mile.
It is a much more unusual design covered all over the roughly painted heart patterns.
It measures about 6 inches in height, and its widest point has a diameter of 6 inches. The spout to handle is 6 1/2 inches.
It is, of course, has no chips or cracks - and in lovely vintage condition.
I haven't seen this particular pattern before from Buchan - so a much harder-to-find design.
It is quite a heavy piece weighing in at 700 grams. It is just a little too large to fit in a box as a small parcel - so it will have to be sent as a medium parcel.
It is a fair asking price for this unusual example with interest in rarer Buchanware on the rise in Scotland.
