What Is A John Roberts?

Other than the name of our current Supreme Court Chief Justice, the Encyclopaedia of Phrases and Orgins defines it as:  "A large jug.  In 1886, Sunday closing of public-houses (read:  pubs) came into effect in Wales, mainly through the efforts of Mr. John Roberst, M.P.   So, and outsized tankard evolved with, it was claimed, would hold sufficient beer to carry thirsty customers over from Saturday night until Monday morning."
