Jugs (Shire Library) free pdf Before the days of modern packaging the only vessel available for fetching, storing or serving liquids was the simple jug. Jugs were the staple product of many pottery firms and, since most households would need several, the potential market was vast and there was great competition among the manufacturers. Decorative jugs sold best and, despite the fact that jugs were utilitarian, a vast number of attractive designs emerged. Although jugs from the eighteenth century are scarce, those from the nineteenth century have survived in large numbers and can fill many a collection. This book reveals the many and varied techniques of decorating jugs throughout the ages, with special emphasis on the sprigged, printed and moulded wares that have survived in such quantity. There is an ideal introduction to the history and design of jugs.
