A low covered pot with jug ear handles of tin glazed earthenware with underglaze blue decoration on either side and on the top depicting a house near water. These pots were used for soft cheese, sort of like cottage cheese if I understand correctly. The top is loose fitting but the raised lip of the pot fits into a channel in the top. 4 ¼ inches tall by 8 inches across handles. (10 x 20 cm).

Condition: Minor wear to the bottom. Top broken and restuck with the missing bits filled and over painted. The intention is not to deceive but to look about the way it did before being broken. The repair is easily seen with the naked eye.

This is an interesting form with both parts starting live together.
