any thoughts on a water jug please.

Rashly, I once though I'd collect water jugs  -  then when I realized how many different kinds there are.......well, I just gave up.  This I don't think is anything special - nicely ground and polished concave pontil and a sort of 'wrythen' or possibly 'honeycomb' optic moulding albeit feintish (sort of Webbsy) - about 235mm/9.25 inches tall, with a lot of base wear.     But it is the amber coloured handle and base that I thought were intriguing  -  and I'm guessing date wise it is about 1920  -  1940 ish, although no marks that I can see.   Anyone recognize the style/colour.   Thanks for looking.
