Harvest jug

Description
Decorated with a ploughing scene and portrait of John Wesley. Wesley (1703-1791) was a founder of the Methodist movement and travelled to Devon several times. As this jug reveals, Methodism held a long-lasting appeal with rural communities in the West Country. The religion, as seen here, encouraged people to experience Christ personally through their daily work and leisure time.
