Lidded Wine Jug 

French, c.1750

You've heard of blood red wine? This is pretty close! A large faience wine jug with a pewter lid, beautifully painted with a gruesome scene. The pewter lid struck with touches of a castle and a coat of arms(?) Obviously for a baronial household! Scratched painter's mark "SE" under base. Made of a red terracotta under the tin glaze. One of the largest and best wine jugs we've come across.
