The Chedworth Jug. An important Derby ovoid jug, with straight neck and 'C' scroll handle, finely painted in black and sepia with a battle scene with numerous mounted figures, figures on foot, and a wagon, within an oval gilt panel, and with gilt berried leaf bands, 8" high, circa 1790, crowned crosses batons mark in puce and gilder's number 8 for William Longdon

Jhn Twitchett makes reference to Joseph Lygo's letters of 1790, where he refers to a 'battle print with figures on horseback', assumed to be the source print for this jug. The jug was purchased at a house sale in Chedworth, Gloucestershire, and no comparable decoration has been recorded.
