Pale brown salt-glazed stoneware decorated with with applied moulded reliefs of six huntsmen returning from the chase with two large deciduous trees and two pine trees between them

Pale brown stoneware, thrown, with an applied handle, incised and applied moulded relief decoration, and salt-glaze on the exterior. The ovoid jug has a very short neck with a recessed rim, and a broad strap handle which tapers towards its lower end, and has a hole at the top for the attachment of a mount and cover. The sides are decorated with a scene of huntsmen returning from the chase. From left to right: man holding a rabbit or hare over his shoulder on a pole; a small fir tree; a man holding a gun walking beside his hound; a large deciduous tree; two huntsmen carrying a dead stag upside down on a pole between them, and a hound jumping up towards it; another large deciduous tree; a huntsman holding an animal over his shoulder on a pole, with his dog walking behind him; a small fir tree; and a huntsman carrying a gun and blowing a horn . Below the figures there are groups of short vertical and horizontal lines representing the ground.
