Cowboy character jug produced by John Humphreys Pottery of Staffordshire, England, circa 1990 in a limited edition of 1,000. A cowboy is an animal herder who tends cattle on ranches in North America, traditionally on horseback, and often performs a multitude of other ranch-related tasks. The historic American cowboy of the late 19th century arose from the vaquero traditions of northern Mexico and became a figure of special significance and legend. In addition to ranch work, some cowboys work for or participate in rodeos. Commissioned by Pick-Kwik Wines & Spirits, this Cowboy character jug is an advertising piece for Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey and has a Jim Beam bottle for its handle.
