Sinbad character jug - Shorter & Son circa 1965

Sinbad character jug produced by Shorter & Son of Stoke-on-Trent, England, circa 1965. Sinbad the Sailor is the hero of "The Thousand and One Nights" who recounts his adventures on seven voyages. Sindbad is marooned or shipwrecked after he sets sail from Basra with merchandise. He is able to survive the terrible dangers he encounters by a combination of resourcefulness and luck and returns home with a fortune. Sindbad's movement from prosperity to loss, experienced during a voyage filled with adventure, and back to prosperity, achieved when he returns home, is repeated in the structure of each tale. Thick rope and a wooden pully form the handle of the jug.
