Fifty Years A Queen character jug - Bairstow Manor Pottery circa 2002

Fifty Years A Queen character jug produced by Bairstow Manor Pottery of Hanley, England, in a 2002 limited edition of 500. Queen Elizabeth II, born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, (1926-2022) was Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms from February 6, 1952 until her death in 2022. She was queen regnant of 32 sovereign states during her lifetime, 15 of them at the time of her death. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days was the longest of any British monarch and the longest verified reign of any female monarch in history. Although she faced occasional republican sentiment and media criticism of her family, support for the monarchy in the United Kingdom remained consistently high throughout her lifetime, as did her personal popularity. This character jug commemorates Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee, serving fifty years as Queen of England. Modeled by Ray Noble, note the gilded scepter, crown and 50 that form the handle of the jug.
