Heroes, no not the sci-fi tv series (much as i adore it), but Heroes of the historic kind. These three graduated jugs, made of a jasperware type of earthenware, were produced by the Livesley Powell & Co company and commemorate some of the heroes/luminaries of the day. Sadly, that was the only description I could get from the auction listing! Who the heroes are is anyone's guess but i wouldn't be surprised to see Nelson on one of them, even 60 years after his heroics at Trafalgar.

About Me

My photo
Sometimes, life doesn't turn out the way you expected. And sometimes, it is exactly as it was 'meant' to be. But whilst i'm not a believer in fate or fatalism, I do believe that life is a both a learning experience and an obstacle course to be climbed and clambered over in the most creative way possible! In doing so, you'll get to where you should be even if it's not where you'd imagined.
