RARE BROWN STONEWARE COMIC CHARACTER JUG.  Circa 1850

This rare and totally engaging Brown Stoneware Comic Character Jug dates from circa 1850.

It is modelled as a jovial, rogue-ish fellow bearing his teeth and sticking out his tongue.

A similar Jug is illustrated in R.K. Henrywood’s Illustrated Guide to British Jugs, Page 209, Plate 580.  I think our Jug has even more attitude and ‘exhibits considerable naive charm’.

There is just a small, thin nick to the underside of the footrim (at 8.00 o’clock in the close-up photograph).  Other than that there are no cracks, chips or restoration which is quite amazing considering the Jug may once have been used in a Tavern.

Height:  7.5 inches (19 cm)
