Unglazed, hand-built drop shape jug with a rounded base, a singular handle and an elongated neck. The jug is painted with geometric decoration of red or brown pigment on buff clay.
There are three labels stuck to the jug: one on the side and two on the base.
This jug is illustrated in 'The Pictorial World', January 10th 1891, on page 52, and is described thus: 'Specimen of pottery from Cyprus (...in the department of antiquities [ie on display in Surrey House]). This is good in shape, and the handle is rather uncommon in form; colour, a light terra-cotta; ornamentation in lines and squares, of a dark red terra-cotta. There are various other specimens of the kind.'
