John Barleycorn ~ Stone

The jug is 149mm tall. Buff stone coloured earthenware.

Note the impressed "30" on the base. This is the number in a 'potter's dozen', and it relates to the size (the smaller the number, the larger the jug), and the way it is invoiced out from the factory (if you bought a dozen of 30s you would get 30 jugs).

The registration diamond is for 18 April 1856, parcel 7. The heart shape is probably a moulder's tally mark.
