Similar jugs

When I read The Bloomsbury cookbook by Jans Ondaatje Rolls, something on page 49 immediately caught my eye. It was a painting by Roger Fry made in 1918, called Still-life with a buscuittin and some pots.
The jug in that painting looked very much like one my grandmother always had on her bookcase. Now this jug is on the cabinet in my parent's hall.
The blue motive is a little bit different, but for the rest it looks like the same kind of jug.
So funny.
