Blenko Jug

I have a large Blenko two handled jug that I cannot id as to designer or year.  I believe it is either Nickerson or Shepherd but cannot locate a similar one looking at the catalog pages.  It is 15” high, 8” in diameter at the bottom and 9 1/4” in diameter from handle to handle.  It is in tangerine.  Any help you can provide will be appreciated.
Thank you,

Your jug is a Blenkp #7627 in Tangerine. This two handled jug was designed by Don Shepherd. I believe it was only produced for one year since it only shows up in the '76 reference material I have. Nice piece for any collection. MIssed out on one on Ebay several years ago and wish I had bid higher since I have yet to have seen one since.
