This stoneware jug is just 5 1/4 inches tall, an uncommon size. Its shape is a pronounced beehive, tapering from a narrow neck to the 4 3/4 inch diameter round bottom. The applied handle is nicely shaped and bears the finger marks of the maker. The dark brown Albany slip glaze, so named for a clay first mined from the Hudson Valley of New York, is glossy and has the orange peel surface of the final salt glazing. The jug weighs 1 3/4 pounds and holds a mere 24 ounces (3/4 of a quart).
