This is a fine mid-century Scottish stoneware jug.
It was made by Buchan Pottery, Portobello (just outside of Edinburgh), and dates to the early 1960s. The old pottery kilns still standing as a point of local interest and history. An interesting display on the history of Buchan Pottery is on display in the Museum of Edinburgh on the Royal Mile, Edinburgh.
My jug has a fine rustic design - with cute boldly painted abstract flowers in a band around the jug.
It would look good in a country kitchen on a pine dresser - or perhaps as a table centerpiece with little country flowers on display in it - and used as a wee vase.
It a nice more compact size - being 6 inches in height. It is 5 3/4 inches at the widest point. The spout to handle is 6 1/4 inches.
Unpacked it is 850 grams.
It is, of course, has no chips or cracks - and in lovely vintage condition.
A fair asking price for this pretty hand-painted piece of Scottish pottery with interest in Buchanware currently on the rise in Scotland.
