I found this mudlarking last year, still one of my favourite finds. No idea what period this is from or what the complete jug would have looked like. Seems such an everyday kind of jug. Somehow the shape and proportions are so pleasing. The body is biscuit thin and has an almost metallic resonance. Wheel made but finished off with a rather charmingly  imperfect, hand pinched handle. Remnants of glaze inside and out, so any fanciful thoughts of it being Roman are quashed. Certainly one of the objects I'll be taking to the Finds Officer at the Museum of London.
