When Chicago held he Columbian Exposition in 1893 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Columbus' landing, Doulton Lambeth Pottery Works had a huge presence as exhibitors, showcasing all sorts of wonderful items. This particular stoneware jug was a huge marketing success designed by John Broad. It is done in bold cobalt, brown and mocha colors and features applied molded reliefs of Washington, Columbus and the Great Seal of the United States. It's a very impressive, visual piece. It has the Doulton Lambeth mark on the bottom along with various other marks. It measures 7.5" tall and is 7" from the tip of the spout to the tip of the handle. There is a small rim chip, but, otherwise, it's in wonderful condition.
