Verdi character jug - Lancaster and Sandland circa 1950

Verdi character jug produced by Lancaster and Sandland of Hanley, England, circa 1950. Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi (1813-1901) was an Italian composer best known for his operas. Verdi came to dominate the Italian opera scene after the era of Gioachino Rossini, Vincenzo Bellini, and Gaetano Donizetti, whose works significantly influenced him. In his early operas, Verdi demonstrated sympathy with the Risorgimento movement which sought the unification of Italy. He surprised the musical world by returning, after his success with the opera Aida (1871), with three late masterpieces: his Requiem (1874), and the operas Otello (1887) and Falstaff (1893). His operas remain extremely popular, especially the three peaks of his 'middle period': Rigoletto, Il trovatore and La traviata.
