I just want to confirm that I have the correct ID for this Whitefriars jug?

I believe it's M171 and the pattern is Snowflake

Could be 'snowflake' which is more of a bumpy texture and holds 2 pints or a glacier M33 which holds 2 pints also or the smaller M37 at 1 pint?
So how much it holds could be a starting point have not gone either to compare but this is glacier to compare the texture.

I agree with Chris it looks very Glacier textured.  I have tumblers, two decanters and a large bowl and I would think they have the same style of pattern.

Found you some piccies.  Note that the top cm or so is relatively unpatterned in each type.
