A George III creamware jug c. 1800.....Long live the King.......freedom to the slave
A George III creamware jug dating to the early 19th century.
“To my best friends are free, free with that and free with me, free to pass the harmless joke, and the tube sedately smoke, free to drink just what they please, as at home and at their ease, free to speak and free to think, no informers with me drink, free to stay a night or so, when uneasy free to go”.
The other side:
”Rum, Brandy, Gin. Long Live the King, Prosperity to the nation, health to the sick, honour to the brave, success to the lover, freedom to the slave............May the wings of liberty never loose (sic) a feather............A little health, a little wealthy, a little house and freedom, and at the end a little friend, and little cause to need him..........May every honest heart never know distress.”
An unusual example. Small hairline cracks in places.
Measuring: 14 cm tall
English, c 1800
