Weekend Family Finds

I have been helping my mum with moving house over the past few months and came across this beautiful jug which she let me bring home with me...

It has a name and year on the front of it 

Mrs Wilcock was my great, great grandmother and guess what yes she lived in Leeds. 

It is beautifully decorated with these painted flowers.

I am guessing it was a wedding present as my great, great grandparents Charles Wilcock and Sarah Ann Holmes AKA Mrs Wilcock got married in 1899 in Hunslet, Leeds, West Yorkshire.

I would love to know the history behind this jug, the amazing thing about this jug is also that it survived!! I have very, very few heirlooms from this side of my family and a lot of this family still remains a mystery...
