Boscawen jug
This jug was produced to mark Admiral Edward Boscawen’s victory at Louisbourg, Nova Scotia. Louisbourg was an important French fortress and settlement, close to the Newfoundland fishing grounds and the entrance to the Gulf of St Lawrence. Without taking Louisbourg, the British would be unable to attack French forces in Quebec. This commemorative jug was commissioned by the Noble Order of Bucks, a patriotic convivial society who met at the Turk’s Head tavern in Soho.
