This is a nice earlier 20th-century Whisky advertising jug - made James Greene & Nephew Ltd.
It is in good condition with no chips or cracks - some very minor rubbing to the gilding on the rim - and very light craquelure (only seen on close up inspection) commensurate with age and use.
It is 12 cm in height (5 inches). It is 8.3 cm square (3 1/4 inches).
It has the maker's mark to the base: James Green & Nephew Ltd Designers & Manufacturers London
Rd No. 342349
It dates to the 1930s and it now nearly 90 years old.
It features the famous Johnnie Walker "Striding Man" motif - he appears twice on the jug - on opposing sides.
This jug would have sat on a bar in a public house and contained water to water down your wee dram.
The thing that I like best about this jug is the strange shape - and how the handle is formed as an indented aperture through the sides of the jug. Nice little shell detailed rim.
