An inusual jug, I have never seen anythinq quite like it before. It depicts a judge,crossed keys, sheafs of corn and a pig, the pattern is repeated on the other side of the jug. There is some tiny writing around the base of the jug which is hard to decipher. There is an old note in the jug referring to some lord or other suggesting the whole jug relates to the tythe laws, whick makes sense with these motifs.
