Caesar character jug in a cream colorway produced by Weetman Giftware of Tunstall, England, circa 1960. Gaius Julius Caesar (100 BC-44 BC) was a Roman general and statesman. A member of the First Triumvirate, Caesar led the Roman armies in the Gallic Wars before defeating his political rival Pompey in a civil war, and subsequently became dictator from 49 BC until his assassination in 44 BC. He played a critical role in the events that led to the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire. This jug is part of a character jug series from the 1898 play "Caesar and Cleopatra" by George Bernard Shaw.
