Named topographical views are rare on Swansea pottery of this period, and can generally be attributed either (as here) to Thomas Pardoe, the Cambrian Pottery’s chief painter between about 1790 and 1809, or to William Weston Young (employed there 1803-1806). This jug is closely similar to a jug painted by Pardoe with a view of Mumbles lighthouse in the National Museum’s collection and may even have been made as a pair to it.
