I first saw this style of jug in a museum in New Orleans. It was glazed in a dark blackish brown glaze. This quart size French jug is 6" tall and holds 30-32 oz. It would fit the 18th century French reenactor, or someone from Louisiana, Canada, or other French settlements. I doubt any of these would have been made in the British colonies. They were probably imported.
The French jug shown is an example of the jug you will receive if you purchase this style of jug.
Thanks for stopping to look.
