A Mochaware jug decorated with three color cable design on a barrel form. What makes this jug so wonderful is the eye-catching cable pattern. It loops around the main rust colored section of the jug. Above and below the main section are thinner bands of brown and light blue. The terminals of the handle are decorated with a crisp foliate design.
