Jug, with scene depicting Prince Charles Edward Stewart

This jug depicting Prince Charles Edward Stewart, was made by the Clyde Pottery Company at Greenock in Renfrewshire. It dates from between 1863 and 1900 and is of a material known as lustreware - highly glazed earthenware decorated by the application of metallic oxides to the glaze.

The ribbon to the left of the figure is inscribed 'Prince' and the one to the right, 'Charlie'.

A pottery at Greenock was established in 1815 under the title of 'The Clyde Pottery Company'. It was run by Thomas Shirley & Co from the 1840s until 1857. Thereafter, it continued as the Clyde Pottery Company Ltd until 1863. From then until 1900 it was known as the Clyde Pottery Company and from 1900 until its closure in 1905, it reverted back to Clyde Pottery Company Ltd.
