The scene on the jug is of Moses striking the rock of Horeb to produce water, as described in Exodus 17:1-7.

The cartouche reads:
"Published by / E. RIDGWAY & ABINGTON, / HANLEY / January 1, 1853."
The impressed "12" is the size of the jug, and refers to the number in a potters' dozen.
The other mark is probably a moulder's tally mark.
