This stoneware jug was a recent donation to a local charity, which has inquired as to its value. The rim has a small flake out of it, and one of the glazed slips has burst. Otherwise the condition is good. It is marked in blue with a stylized “4” and a drawn dragonfly, the latter being obscure. The jug is 18 inches high.

A lady in Kilmarnock inherited this pair of oriental tables many years ago. She thinks the wood is teak, and the overall condition is excellent, save for one of the lower stretchers that has been broken and taped together with black electric tape. The stains on the top are from two jardinières that contained plants. They are unmarked as to origin, and are 22 inches high.
