Stoneware water pitchers or jugs were a popular novelty item and were produced by many English potteries. The "Apostles" design was patented by Charles Meigh in 1842. The octagonal form includes niches with medieval figure, and Meigh also made a variant with empty niches or Gothic patterns with hunting scenes or knights jousting.
