My sister has two "Jarrow Peace Pots" from 1919.
They are about the same size and shape as a pint glass but in china with the Jarrow Borough coat of arms on them. I believe they were given to Jarrow's school children to celebrate the end of the Great War. One was my late dad's and the the other was either his deceased brother's or sister's.

When sister comes back from hols I will contact her and ask her to get some photos of them.

Has anyone else seen or heard of them.

Hi Pronto, Ive never heard of them before, but several months ago there was some WW1 Jarrow memorobilia for sale on ebay and this rings a bell.

Be great to get some photos and maybe a new photo album for old Jarrow Memorabilia.

We used to have something that sounded like "Peace pot" but I wouldn't encourage anyone to drink from it.

We kept it under the bed...........:o:o

I tried googling "peace pots" but didn't come up with anything resembling your description pronto105. It'll be interesting to see a photo. The only memorabilia I have of Jarrow is me birth certificate and a picture of me dad. :)

I came across this on e-bay. Not the Jarrow coat of arms but still a 1919 peace pot with the names of the allies either side of the figure.

I have a printed receipt from my late grandfathers coal and haulage firm, which was at 6 Watson St. in the 30s, any ideas where Watson St. is or was?.
Also have my late dads LABOUR CERTIFICATE from 1934, which he recieved on leaving St. Peters school at 14yrs of age, with a outstanding school report on the reverse. Issued by Borough of Jarrow Education Committee.

reply from Tyne and Wear Museum
These may have been issued to individual schoolchildren to mark the signing of the Treaty of the Peace of Versailles on 28 June 1919 which laid out the the formal conditions for the ending of World War One. We have Logbooks from several Jarrow schools of the period which may contain references to these celebrations and issue of the "Peace pots". Details of these can be seen on our User Guide 15 : Schools - South Tyneside which can be found on our website www.tyneandweararchives.org.uk/userguides (http://www.tyneandweararchives.org.uk/userguides) . We also have Minutes of the Jarrow Higher Education Sub-Committee. These include the Minutes of the Annual Report of the Head Master of Jarrow Secondary School for 1918 - 1919, held on 16 October 1919, which make brief reference to the Peace Celebrations (T10/229). The Jarrow Borough Council Minutes for 10 July 1919 also contain a similar brief reference to the Peace Celebrations (MB.JA/4/23). You are welcome to visit our public searchroom to look at these documents. Details of our location and opening times can be found on www.tyneandweararchives.org.uk/visit (http://www.tyneandweararchives.org.uk/visit). If this is not possible you may like to make use of our Paid Research Service. Further details can be found on www.tyneandweararchives.org.uk/research (http://www.tyneandweararchives.org.uk/research) .

I also suggest that you contact the Local History Section of South Shields Central Library, Prince Georg Square, South Shields, NE33 2PE, e-mail localstudies.library@southtyneside.gov.uk (localstudies.library@southtyneside.gov.uk). They may have local newspapers of that date containing reports about the issuing of these items.
