A fine Doulton Lambeth stoneware art pottery jug produced to mark the death of British Victorian Prime Minister Wm E Gladstone. The jug is decorated in buff and green coloured glazes with tube-lined detail. A profile image of Gladstone sits in a cartouche on the body of the jug together with the legend ‘Effort, honest, manful, humble effort – succeeds by reflective action upon character better than success’ written in a tube-lined ribbon. Impressed Doulton Lambeth marks to the base together with an incised artist initials LB (possibly L Bowen) and impressed other marks (one possibly of artist Imogen Durtnall).
