The Doulton Chicago Exhibition 1893 Jug

As you will be aware Doulton produced many commemoratives throughout it’s long history. Perhaps one of the most unusual is this jug designed by John Broad in 1893 to commemorate this great exhibition.

Either side of the American eagle are portraits of Columbus and Washington between bands of stars.

Finally above the portraits is the banner proclaiming the “World’s Columbian Exposition” – a real tour de force I am sure you’ll agree!
