This sweet little milk jug was originally a souvenir of Glendalough, the beautiful site in Co. Wicklow of monastic ruins and stunning countryside. However, it started it's life in Carrigaline, Co. Cork, thus the name 'Carrig Ware'. It was in Cork that I bought it, so there you go, home again.

The little jug has a cream body with a brown glazed handle and inside, and is decorated with a green stripe and shamrocks, with 'From Glendalough' inscribed in the clay. It measures 8cm high and 6cm in diameter. It has no chips or cracks, although there are flaws in the glaze which seem intentional as it has a rustic look.

I am not entirely certain of the exact age of the jug, but Carrig Ware was manufactured between 1928 and 1980, my guess would be maybe the 1960s. It is a sweet little thing, to serve a little cream with an apple tart, or just to look at and maybe put a few bluebells in.
