John Smith character jug - Applause circa 1995

John Smith character jug produced in Indonesia for Applause of Woodland Hills, California, in circa 1995. John Smith (1580-1631) was an English soldier, explorer, colonial governor, admiral of New England, and author. He played an important role in the establishment of the colony at Jamestown, Virginia, the first permanent English settlement in North America, in the early 17th century. He was a leader of the Virginia Colony between September 1608 and August 1609, and he led an exploration along the rivers of Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay, during which he became the first English explorer to map the Chesapeake Bay area. John Smith is the deuteragonist of Disney's 1995 animated feature film "Pocahontas". He is a renowned English explorer that took part in Governor Ratcliffe's expedition to Virginia, where he would meet and fall in love with Pocahontas.
Smith is very loosely based on the actual historical figure of the same name.
