Also known as a Hambleton Jug, no one knows why they have a face on them

Even the Ancient Celts and Romans had cups with faces on

Can you think why?


The Tudors - Face Jug

These jugs were popular before Henry VIII was king and after he died, but not during his reign

Maybe it's because it looks a little like him?

Perhaps it was disrespectful to pour a drink out of something that looked like the king?
