    Antique 19th C Staffordshire Ceramic Bacchus Head Wedding Jug Recently Purchased

    Rare Staffordshire pottery wine wedding jug. Molded in the form of Bacchus. Known as the "Green Man" throughout 18th and 19th century. His hair is adorned as foliage.. His lock of hair also serves as a handle for holding. It has a small spout as one of his hair locks in the front of his head for the more genteel pouring and a glut spout on the side for the passing around in male company.

    One of these appeared in the Granada Series "Sherlock Holmes" (Jeremy Brett) in the episode entitled "The Speckled Band."

      Wow, exceptional piece of pottery VL.
      This is incredibly well modeled and weirdly attractive.
      I imagine it's use was for bucks night? The lut spout was probably more often used :))

      bobby725, No. She would fall in love with it within seconds :)

      racer, I love it. It will sit in my "Sherlock Room" with all the other weird stuff. Yes, the glut spout was used so much that the cork is long gone.

      vintagelamp, Cool.

      That tidbit about Sherlock Holmes, "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," and Jeremy Brett is very cool. :-)

      It's still fairly amazing to me to realize that the same actor who portrayed Sherlock Holmes so brilliantly was the same person who played Eliza Doolittle's upper-class twit suitor in the movie "My Fair Lady."

      So you have a Sherlock Room, huh? Do you have a Persian slipper full of tobacco? };-)

      I will never look at it in the same way...

      Jeremy Brett was the greatest! Yes, I do have a Persian slipper filled with tobacco.
      Thank you!!!
