Description, including signature and date
This large jug contains a structure with fans and whittled objects, very similar in form to two known jugs by J. Lacalski. The decorations in this one are in pencil and some paint. The carvings include a ladies' shoe, a horseshoe, a book and a squirrel. The central shaft has carved dice at the top, and four painted birds are on the bottom. The maker made at least one other jug like this and another in a regular quart.
