Earthenware jug, of squat baluster shape and transfer-printed in dark blue. On both sides, a portrait of Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) with ships on the horizon behind him. The portrait is flanked by trophies surrounded by floral wreaths. Around it is the inscription 'ENGLAND EXPECTS EVERY MAN TO DO HIS DUTY', 'ADMIRAL LORD NELSON', 'Copenhagen Nile 1798', 'Trafalgar 1805'. Above the portrait, within a laurel wreath, is the verse: 'Shew me my Country's Foes,/The Hero cry'd,/He saw-He faught-He conquer'd,/And he di'd.' This is continued below 'Dear to his Country,/shall his Mem'ry live;/But sorrow drown's the Joy,/His Deeds should give.' Under the lip is a caricature of a gentleman, seated in front of a dressing table and attempting to put on his trousers but unable to look down because of his high cravat. It is entitled 'A Dandy' and he is saying 'I really believe I must take off my cravat or I shall never get my trousers on.' The jug has floral borders on the inside and outside of the rim and on the handle. The intials 'F J' are painted under the lip in green.
