The jug is decorated with the transfers of the “Northumberland ’74″,; the West view of the Wear Bridge, and the verse: “Swiftly see each moment flies….etc”.

The jug is large, standing 8¾ inches ( from base to the top of the spout 22.5 cms). The spout has is fluted as opposed to the usual smooth shape. The jug is also decorated with floral transfers, more commonly seen on pices manufactured by Anthony Scott and Moore & Co. The floral transfers are from a sheet pattern called “Dresden“.

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
