Earthenware fish jug by Dartmouth Pottery
All through my childhood there was one of these jugs on the kitchen table at mealtimes. My parents had two of them, one green and one white. So when I saw this one for sale at a car boot sale in Devon, I couldn’t resist it. For the uninitiated, the thing that makes it special is that when you pour water from the fish’s mouth the jug makes a very satisfying gurgling sound… very entertaining when you are little.
