This jug has a machine embroidered texture crane in flight with swaying bamboo on the reverse. The embroidery stitches have been overpainted with cobalt before going into their final kiln firing. Cranes are symbolic of longevity and good fortune whilst bamboo symbolises flexibility and strength. The interior and handle are glazed. The base has three sprigged button feet. The jug is 8cm tall and the base is 9cm wide. Dishwasher safe with care.
