Large MASONIC, Northumberlnd ’74 Dixon & Co jug. c.1845 SOLD

A very  large pink lustre decorated jug, firmly attributed to Dixon & Co., Sunderland “Garrison” Pottery, c.1845.

Various transfers including the Masonic transfer and verse:

The World is in pain,

Our secrets to gain,

But let them wonder and gaze on,

They ne’er can divine, The word nor the sign,

of a free and an accepted Mason”

The transfer of the “Northumberland ’74″ and the verse: “Swiftly see each moment flies….etc”

HMS Northumberland was a 74-gun third rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, built at the yards of Barnard, Deptford and launched on 2 February 1798 “Northumberland” participated in the Battle of San Domingo, where she was damaged, and suffered 21 killed and 74 wounded, the highest casualties of any British ship in the battle On November 22,  1810, Northumberland, while in the company of HMS Armada, a 74-gun third rate, captured the 14-gun French privateer ketch La Glaneuse. She received a measure of fame when she transported Napoleon I into captivity on the Island of Saint  Helena. Napoleon had surrendered to Captain Frederick Maitland of HMS Bellerophon, on 15 July 1815 and transported him to Plymouth. Napoleon
was transferred from the Bellerophon to the Northumberland for his final voyage
to St. Helena because concerns were expressed about the suitability of the ageing ship. HMS Northumberland was therefore selected instead .She was converted to a hulk in February 1827, and returned to Deptford to be broken up in 1850.

The jug has suffered a damaged spout which shows sign of an old repair and the re-fixing of the spout. There is a firing crack to the base. This was often seen on much larger pieces as they tended to sag during the firing process in the kiln.

The jug measures 9¼ inches to the top of the spout (23.5 cms).
