Description
Capt Henry Morgan D6467 (black tricorn, blue collar trimmed with gold). Designed by Garry Sharpe, issued 1958-1982. Size: 6.75"H (Large) A privateer pirate leader in the West Indies, Morgan (1635 – 1688) carried out commissions from the British authorities. His attack on Panama in 1671 violated a peace treaty between England and Spain. Sent to England to stand trial, he was instead knighted and became Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica, where he remained until his death. The city of Stoke-on-Trent, founded in 1910 as an amalgamation of six smaller Staffordshire pottery towns, celebrated its Golden Jubilee in 1960. To commemorate this occasion, Royal Doulton produced a very limited edition of three large-size character jugs: Bacchus, Capt. Henry Morgan, and Izaak Walton. These jugs, adorned with a special backstamp, were given to dignitaries attending the celebration, courtesy of the Lord Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent, Alderman Harold Clowes, and Lady Mayoress, Miss Christine Clowes.
