Alexander Seventh Marquess of Bath character jug - Bairstow Manor Potter circa 2000

Alexander Seventh Marquess of Bath character jug produced by Bairstow Manor Pottery of Hanley, England, in a limited edition of 500 circa 2000. Alexander George Thynn (1932-2020) was the seventh Marquess of Bath, after being Viscount Weymouth between 1946 and 1992. He was an English peer and landowner, owner of the Longleat estate, who sat in the House of Lords from 1992 until 1999, and was also an artist and author. Lord Bath was often in the media spotlight for his hippy fashion-sense and his many "wifelets". This jug was commissioned by Longleat and was modeled by Ray Noble.
