    New Brunswick Museum, Saint John, N.B., A45.229


    Roman flagon

    early 2nd century

    earthenware, 23.5 x 15 cm


    This flagon was once part of the collection at the Old Guildhall Museum, London. Lusk Webster most likely acquired it on her trip to England in 1940, during which she managed to secure a donation of several British-Roman and early English artefacts from the Guildhall Museum. On the same trip she persuaded the Dean of Westminster to part with a thirteenth-century fragment of the Abbey, and obtained a Tudor Rose from contractors repairing the Houses of Parliament.
