Raeren Peasant Dance Salt Glazed Jug,

The attempt to maintain consistent temperature and oxygen not consistent, therefore producing differing results. Likely, they were sold at a discounted price, anyway, these jugs, this being a very nice example in dark color are desirable and scarcely encountered.
