Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The jug is painted with a colourful coat of arms on the front, banded and bordered with gilt marbling over a salmon (or peach) ground. The rim and shoulder with a fine gilt wide band of ferns and cornucopias and elements of the same design on the underside of the spout.
The armorial bearings are those of the family of Lucy impaled with those of the family of Forster. These armorial bearings denote the marshalling of a marital coat showing on the dexter (the heraldic right on the left as you view the piece) the arms of the husband and on the sinister (the heraldic left on the right as you view it) the arms of the wife. They may be blazoned as follows:
(on the dexter) Gules two lucies hauriant between five cross crosslets argent* (for Lucy)
(on the sinister) Argent on a chevron between three bugle horns sable stringed gules a pheon of the field (for Forster)
* Ordinarily the arms of Lucy depict three lucies hauriant on a red field which is semy of cross crosslets or crusily field or even sometimes has a defined number of cross crosslets (see Figure 1). Both lucies and cross crosslets being argent. It may be presumed that the lack of one lucie could well be down an error by the artist.
