Item Description

This is a 1930’s advertising jug given out by Dunbar & Kenley Grocers Witbank.  The story of The infamous Hiwayman Dick Turpin is illustrated on one side leaping over a gate and the other side standing next to poor old Black Bess whom it is told he rode from London to York.   No wonder she died.

The jug is stained and crazed inside – see pictures and some of the design has rubbed off.   No chips or cracks.  Please see pictures and dont hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

From Google:  During the 20th Century, Burgess and Leigh became known as ‘Burleigh’. Following difficult conditions in the 90s, the Dorling family purchased the business and a new era of family ownership began. In 2010, Burleigh was acquired by Denby Holdings Limited, the parent company of Denby Pottery. A year later, The Prince of Wales stepped in to help with emergency repair works needed at Middleport Pottery – his charity, HRH The Princes Regeneration Trust, offered the £9 million support that we needed to keep production going.
