French jug in the shape of a walnut. This is such a fun ceramic jug! It was made to use for digestifs like Calvados (apple brandy) but you could use if for anything, or just display it. The modelling is very good on it, it does look like a walnut with a couple of gilded leaves and the handle is a twig, also gilded. The color is a beautiful golden brown, very autumnal.

The jug measures 7ins (18cm) tall to the top of the handle and is about 6ins (15cm) at its widest point. On the bottom is the mark R with decorated by hand and France.

It is in good vintage condition - the gold is starting to wear off in places, especially the handle (see last photo), but in fact it doesn't detract at all from the jug because the golden color from underneath shows through instead. I should point something out - in the first photo if you look closely you will see what looks like a crack running around the walnut. I have looked at this closely under a loop and it is just a crease made during manufacturing and glazed over, there is no crack! It is not really visible unless you're looking for it anyway.

What an unusual jug to have for display, or to use for you digestifs.

Please contact me if you have any questions.
