This oak jug is typical of the type of household equipment which was used in ordinary houses in England for hundreds of years. It was probably made over 200 years ago. The cooper made containers for both dry and liquid goods. Their work was highly specialized and required a 7 year apprenticeship, which was the longest of all the woodworking trades.
