"totally useless"

Oh dear. Let’s hope this isn’t the start of a ‘damaged jugs’ trend.

“this jug has lost its handle”

So it’s more of a vase now?

“and there is a hole in the side where the hadle used to fit”

Oh, more of a colander then?

“i have NO idea what it is made of”

Seriously? No idea at all?
I think you could possibly hazard a guess at “Metal”.

“it weighs 117 grams”

I mean that’s a clue right there that it’s not made of polystyrene.
Or paper.
Or gas.

“written on the base it says: E. Stacey and Son, successors to John Vickers, Brittania Place, Sheffield”

And I think, given Sheffield’s age-old reputation for metallurgy, we can safely rule out “sislicone” too.

    Looks a bit like an evil bird, perched there. A fat, steely raven. Sell it to the Wiccan mob, I say. “Created in the eternal flames of ancient Sheffield”.
