Here is a large beautiful English salt glazed character stoneware jug, circa 1840, bearing the likeness of Souter Johnny, who was Tam O’Shanter’s sidekick in the Famous Robert Burns 1790 poem.
This marvelous jug is probably a Doulton. Lambeth product or also possibly a product of Derbyshire.
This jug is about 6 ½” tall and 8” wide.
It has the most beautiful speckled salt glaze that you will ever see!
It is in nearly perfect condition, no cracks or repairs, but it has very minor, underneath, base flakes, see photo.
A SUPER PIECE!
Another example of this jug, but no where near as nice and missing its handle is in the Museum of London Collection and can be found in their on-line catalogs. The last photo shows it as photographed in the Museum's archives.
Thanks for looking!
