Enormous Doulton Lambeth jug

Post by Guest on August 19th 2014, 6:00 pm

Weighs a massive 5.556kg and 14.5 ", Would this have been used as a jug as I would not be able to pick it up if it was full?

I've recently acquired an old copy of Goddens but the mark is not in there, can anyone help with age/use etc.  THANKS  Happy

Somewhere between 1869-1891, when "England" was added.
But as it's a non-decorative item, then probably before 1880.

The company was Doulton & Co. Ltd from 1854 to 1993 so that doesn't really narrow the age of the jug down and like you say I haven't been able to find the exact mark either. It does look like the marks that were used from 1869 to 1877 though.

Other things that might suggest that age is that there is no England in the mark and the fact that it is a plain white/cream coloured jug suggests that it was for industrial or trade use rather than domestic.

Snap SP!
Have you measured the capacity? the numbers may relate to that, or just simply a
shape number.

Thanks SP/Denby for all your help  Happy . I just posted back but my message has disappeared.

I have roughly calculated it would hold approx' 16 litres, so over 20kg full. I'm not sure the handle could survive that weight  Shrugs

It's strong stuff that Doulton!
I was thinking in Quarts / Gallons.
Unless it was a display piece.

It is stoneware and would withstand the weight but from your calculation it would have held around 3.5 gallons so the 2 and E don't seems to be relate directly to the capacity.

It's about a tenth of a barrel of beer so a handy size.

SP around 20 years ago when I was a student in my 20s I worked in a remote pub on saddleworth moor and we used to serve beer from earthenware jugs/from the barrel.

It was like going back in a time warp , haven't been there since but I bet they still do it that way.
