Product Details

  • We offer this rare and stunning antique Admiral Rodney character jug decorated in brown glazes on a green ground and believed to date from around 1790. This delightful earthenware jug is modelled on the eminent George Brydges Rodney, 1st Baron Rodney, who commanded in the American War of Independence and in particular for his victory over the French in the Battle of the Saintes in 1782. The jug is modeled as the head of Admiral Rodney with the collar of his military collar forming the base and his hat forming the top rim. His plaited hair forms the handle. The jug is painted in brown glazes on a cream ground and is not marked.
