Its rim is inverted on the interior and exterior with some exterior thickening. It has a ring base and with a handle. The jug is 6" tall and 41/2" wide including the spout. Vessels like this jug were used for the drinking of beer. The handle is at right angle from the spout which does facilitate drinking from the spout while grain remains in the jug either for additional use or to be thrown away. As the photos show, a portion of the base below the handle has been repaired. The vessel is fully intact and an excellent example of a strainer used to get the barley out of beer.
