Earthenware jug, transfer-printed in black with a circular portrait of Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) with ships behind him and naval trophies below. Below the portrait is inscribed 'ADMIRAL NELSON', around it 'ENGLAND EXPECTS THAT EVERY MAN WILL DO HIS DUTY'. On pennants on either side of the portrait are the inscriptions 'NILE', 'TRAFALGAR' and below the trophies 'VICTORY'. On the other side an eight line verse: 'Alas! now mouldring into dust,/Brittannia's (sic) favourite Nelson lies;/May he inherit with the just,/An endless portion in the skies,/Matchless in arms too early slain/The hostile nations hail'd his fall,/Whole valour crush'd the power of spain./Whose thunder bent the haughty gaul.' Under the lip is a transfer of a warship inscribed 'VICTORY' with the painted inscription 'James Harris 1806'. The jug has a painted decorative border around the neck, and a pattern of dots and leaves on the handle which has black edges.
