Description

Water jug reconstructed from ceramic sherds recovered from Aust Waster Dump #2, indicating it was constructed between 1756 and 1760.

The jug is made from buff colored clay. The interior is coated in a matte black glaze. This glaze covers the exterior top, around the opening, the entire handle, and about mid-way down one side. The remainder of the exterior is unglazed. Incised lines decorate the throat, 1” above the lower handle attachment point, and at the top of the lower attachment point, as an alignment marker. The handle has an ornamental curved bottom. A matching lid was recovered as well.

Dimensions: 11.375” tall, 7” in diameter at its widest, 4” diameter opening. 8” from handle to widest point.
