A 'Southwick' jug
Below is a fabulous jug from the Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums collection. Though unmarked, the museum attributes the jug to Scott. That's great because it has the same Charles Wesley verses found on the 'Southwick'-attributed plaques in my previous posts. It has the date of 1846 hand-painted on, which is late relative to the small fine plaques.
Shauna Gregg at the Sunderland Museum has provided several more interesting images, which I've added to my previous blog posts. I've also added a photo of the 'J.&P' Sheriff Hill impressed mark.
