English Pottery Fair Hebe Jug, Commemorative Plaque Celebrating

English Pottery Fair Hebe Jug,

Commemorative Plaque Celebrating "George III Restored",

Late 18th-early 19th century


The lead-glazed earthenware jug is relief molded as a tree trunk with a crabstock handle and figures in high relief.  The tree is coloured naturalistically in shades of brown

On one side of the tree is a standing figure of a man and dog below a banner reading: "Long Live The King".  Between his legs is a  bottle with a scratched mark "RU".

On the other side in relief is a sign pinned to the tree reading  "G.R./III/RESTORED

below which are two figures.  The male sits upon the floor showing a bird's nest with eggs to a young lady who sits on a fallen log

Most of these jugs have the impressed mark of John Voyez who was the modeller of this form of jug but which were molded by Ralph Wood Jr..

This is most unusual with the word Fair Hebe missing.  Chip to tip of spout with old invisible restoration.
