A rare, documentary, pink lustre jug commemorating the death of George the 3rd in 1820. This jug is very unusual in that it is incised, to the base, “Samuel Fort is a Maker”. I can find no reference to Samuel Fort but he must have been one of the workers in the pottery which produced this jug. It is moulded, to each side, with a portraits of George the 3rd surrounded by roses and thistles, the emblems of England and Scotland. To the rim is a band of leaves. All of the moulding is then highlighted with a combination of pink lustre and polychrome enamels. Unfortunately the handle has been broken off and put back using steel rivets. This is a very old repair and someone thought enough of the piece to have it done as, in its day, it was an expensive form of repair.
