This gorgeous 13-14th century Saintonge jug boasts a lip shaped like a parrots beak and is painted with another curious bird. Whilst appealing to the ornithologists and nature-lovers among us, this ceramic may also strike the fancy of any art enthusiasts keen to get a close look at Medieval painting styles. This piece was crafted in France (likely as a wine jug), later journeyed to Norfolk to be discovered in the village of Welborne. A perfect item for home birds and travellers alike!
