Souvenir, milk jug

About this object

A souvenir milk or hot water jug from a souvenir shop in North Berwick UK. Jug features the crest of the town.

The original charter of Royal Burgh was granted to the town in 1373 during the reign of Robert III, but this was suppressed by William, Earl of Douglas who held the barony of North Berwick during that period. The Earl refused to implement the charter because he might lose his right of superiority over the port and burgh. The charter now in existence was granted by James VI on 18th September 1568.
