Both jugs were made at the Herculaneum Pottery which produced the finest creamware in the entire Stafforshire region of England. Although the Washington jug is rare and desirable, the Jefferson jug is considerably more so. According to Arman in his book on creamware jugs only one example had been recorded at the time of publication. He records its value among the top few of hundreds of other jugs. Note also another rare feature on the Jefferson piece, it is signed by the artist who presumedly drew the portrait, J. Hapwood. These are both beautiful examples of creamware jugs produced between 1790 and 1815 in England specifically for export to America. In excellent condition with modest surface wear on Jefferson portait and tiny chip on spout of Wasington jug with perfect restoration.
