Four creamware jugs, circa 1780-1800
One printed with a panel of lovers titled 'Beauty..Spirits', the reverse with 'Matrimony and Courtship', 21.4cm, another with prints titled 'The Jovial Fellows' and 'The Ghost', 21cm, the third large jug printed with a panel of Diana, inscribed 'JAMES CAVE AND ANN WOODS 1793', 24.5cm, and another jug printed with two versions of 'The Fortune-Teller', 18cm (some damage and restoration) (4)


  • The 1793 jug was shown in the ECC Shipwrecks and Marriages exhibition, 2009. A family record exists of a James Cave and Ann Woods having a child in 1802, in the County of West Derby, Lancashire. This suggests their jug was made in Liverpool.
