Large creamware pottery serving jug “BRITANNIAS address on the Death of LORD NELSON”, circa 1805

“Behold the PORTRAIT of my darling Son, Who fought and conquered ere his Race was run, Great was his Mind his Soul serenely brave, Britannia weeps let all know his Grave, With Briny Tears let none be void of Grief, For me no pleasure hence my sorrow’s past Relief, Unless his Mantle drops by NEPTUNES Care, On some heroic Shoulder fit to wear, A Garb prophetic of it’s worth and Fame, Should emulate in daring Deeds great Nelsons Glorious Name.
