I made these three jugs last spring and would like to find them a good home.
All three are based off of photographs of Kingston-type wares from the Museum of London's website. They're all dated to the 14th century (or late 13th) and found in the London area.
My jugs are made from stoneware and have a clear glaze (lead free, of course) on the inside to make them easier to wash. The outsides are glazed with wood ashes to imitate a wood firing (mine were fired in a gas kiln). They are all microwave and dishwasher safe.

Here are two of my sources for mugs 1 and 2:http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/ceramics/pages/object.asp?obj_id=34907http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/ceramics/pages/object.asp?obj_id=34887
MUG 1 - $25
MUG 2 - $30
This mug could hold a large drink or double as a small jug (for, say, a bottle of wine).

JUG 3 - $50

The originals of this style do not seem to have a pronounced spout. I followed this on my reproduction, and it pours well for the most part if you're careful. If you aren't, liquid can run down the side of the jug beneath the spout (see the third picture down).

Here is a photo of all the jugs together, with a standard sized coffee cup for scale.
