A lot of two vintage Burleigh Ware jugs/pitchers comprising:
- "Sally in our Alley" jug illustrating a popular song by Henry Carey (1687-1743). The song was set to music by Beethoven and Britten.
- "The Runaway Marriage" jug illustrating a centuries old wedding tradition, which originated from cross-border elopements following the 1754 Marriage Act which prevented couples under the age of 21 marrying in England or Wales without their parent's consent. As it was still legal in Scotland to marry, couples began crossing the border in to Scotland and their first stop was the Famous Blacksmiths Shop, Gretna Green.
Made by Burgess & Leigh (England) ca. 1940-60s.
Condition: there might be slight signs of wear commensurate with age but generally both jugs are in excellent condition. Please refer to the pictures for details.
