Saltglaze stoneware gin flask. This flask is in the form of a statuette of Sir Robert Peel; he carries a wheatsheaf and a poster with the words 'Bread for the millions'. The Corn Laws were introduced in 1815 to stop the price of cereal crops falling at the end of the wars with France. The poor were badly affected, especially by the high cost of bread. When Sir Robert Peel repealed the Corn Laws in 1846, he was seen as a saviour.
