Creamware Jug

8,500.00

What a motto, what a jug. This pot was made circa 1765 in England, possibly at the Leeds Pottery. It features a verse associated with radical politician John Wilkes. Think Ron Paul in a powdered wig.

A mug with this verse is listed in the Wilkes section of an 1899 publication from the Victoria & Albert, “Catalogue of a Collection of Pottery and Porcelain Illustrating Popular British History”, number 494, page 41.

This jug has been restored to hide a number of hairlines emanating from the rim, including one re-stuck triangular piece and one small bit made up. I can direct you to before photos upon request. It measures approximately 8 1/2” high.
