CIDER JUGS-SQUAT

Description:  We have divided the Cider Jugs/Flagons into three categories: the tall ones have two categories, 1) the no spout cover jugs 2) the spout coverd jugs and 3) the squat jugs that are discussed here. 6 shorter squat ones are shown on this page. Although not as majestic as their taller brothers they also have very nice detail. Their color is a lighter blue. They do not have the elaborate twisted handles and their attachments.

CIDER JUGS-TALL (No Spout Cover)

Description:  We have divided the Cider Jugs or Flagons into three categories: the tall ones have two categories,1) the no spout cover ones that are discussed here, 2) the tall ones with spout covers and 3) the shorter squat jugs. These are all magnificient forms with exquisite detail and dark blue color. Note the elaborate twisted handles and their attachments, the very carefully done borders and the well done Foo Dogs. Note: the Foo Dogs always face the sampans on the tall jugs---on the squat jugs they face the mountains.

CIDER JUGS-TALL (Spout Cover)

Description:  We have divided the Cider Jugs or Flagons into three categories: two tall categories (the rarer spout cover variation is discussed here) and the shorter squat ones. These are magnificient forms with exquisite detail and dark blue color. Note the elaborate twisted handle and its attachments and the very carefully done borders. Look at the closeup picture of the borders on this jug, its elaborateness indicates it might be the earliest of all the cider jugs.  See the well done Foo Dogs.
