Buckley pottery tobacco jar"

Ewloe Green Pottery, Ewloe


This tobacco jar was made at Charlie Gerrard's Ewloe Green Pottery around 1895. The leaf design is common to Buckley pottery. There are three finger prints on its base where the potter has dipped it into the slip. There was a lid with a twig which has since been broken. It was used as a jar to hold glue sticks. There appears to be a Post Office emblem on one side of the jar; a crown and a horn. This cannot to date be verified.


It belonged to a John Jones, Brook Cottage, Green Lane, Ewole Green (1849 - 1927). He was a pallbearer to William Ewart Gladstone, Prime Minister.
