Adorned with numerous, applied designs, including floral patterns, knights on horseback, acorns, lions, and featuring a royal crest at the center, this antique, redware ale dispenser is in barrel form with a bung at the top and an inserted, wooden tap at the bottom. It is an attractive addition to any pottery collection, but also would make a great party beverage server. It is probably by Lambeth, Doulton or a similar maker.
