This ceramic creamware jug was made in Liverpool, England, sometime between 1790 and 1800. Jugs like this often featured transfer-printed decorations. These embellishments included political statements, genre scenes and commemorative portraits of famous people. This jug’s scene, titled “Harvest Home,” portrays the act of wheat harvesting. A merry group of farmers dances and celebrates the bountiful harvest in the foreground. In addition to scenic decorations, purchasers could also personalize a jug by adding their name. People used jugs to serve water, milk, cider and beer.
