Period Waterloo Victory Jug Continues to Commemorate

 

A Waterloo Victory Jug for sale depicting The Duke of Wellington. The Victory Jug made by Sunderland Lustreware (1816) to commemorate the Duke of Wellington's victory at the Battle of Waterloo.

The  Jug with blue-tinted glaze and pink/violet decoration, relief oakleaves and acorns to the mouth. To the near side, the jug with  a relief of the Duke of Wellington brandishing his sword on horseback: the horse is most likely the Duke's war horse, Copenhagen.

To the off-side, the jug with an image depicting a drum with muskets, swords and helmets: the George III 'GR' cypher to the drum centre. The base typically free from any manufacture name or trademark.

Condition report: Micro-cracquelure to the glaze in places. Otherwise perfect condition.

Note: Sunderland Lustreware was a style of pottery made in the 19th century along the banks of the River Wear, Sunderland, N.E. England. Although many 'Sunderland' potteries made everyday tableware, several potteries adopted a distinct pottery type and style, which became known as Sunderland Lustreware.

Although rarely, if-ever marked with the maker-name, Sunderland Lustreware is relatively easy to identify: pieces being commemorative plaques and jugs, designs incorporating religious and/or heraldic motifs, colours favouring pink to orange tones.
