Liverpool & Great Western Steam Ship Company epns Jug and a large Sugar Bowl, both manufactured by Elkington Plate. Two extremely attractive items bearing the company name. Note: Stephen Guion, part-owner of the New York-Liverpool Old Black Star Line of sailing packets and manager of Cunard's emigrant business (1862-1866), set up his own steamship line, Liverpool and Great Western Steamship Co. or Guion Line, in 1866. Guion's death in 1885, poor traffic and the high cost of its big fast ships led to its winding up in 1894.
