This bone china jug was possibly made at the Verreville Pottery in Glasgow. It dates from around 1830.

The jug has an inverted pear shaped body and a 'knotted' branch 'C' shaped handle. Each side has a relief moulded bunch of flowers and foliage.

John Geddes was originally the manager of the Verreville works at Finnieston on the Clyde and between 1806 and 1824, he was the owner. Robert Kidston helped run the pottery from 1827 and took over as sole owner in 1838.
