Hi Lisa and welcome to the board. That is a fascinating jug, not seen one before at all. I love the handle especially. Hopefully someone might be able to help with identification.
Cheers!

That was easier to locate than I expected!

This one has a base stamp for House of Litz in Vermont.

By the way, it is Parian ware not Bisque, Bisque is unglazed. Hope this helps.  :bny:
Cheers!
