This hand-painted earthenware jug was possibly made at Musselburgh in East Lothian. It is inscribed 'Andrew Halston Wright/1833/EDINBURGH'.

The jug is decorated with hand-painted flowers, berries and leaves. Below the inscription name is a pair of compasses and set square.

From 1750 onwards, large-scale potteries were established on the south side of the Firth of Forth, at Prestonpans, Prestongrange, West Pans, Musselburgh and Portobello. Much of the skilled workforce came from the older established Staffordshire potteries.
