LARGE ROYAL DOULTON CHARACTER JUG - THE CLOWN - TRIAL PIECE - A/F. Offered for sale is this charming Royal Doulton Character Jug called The Clown, Style Two designed by Stanley J. Taylor with a hat, and the handle formed as a gloved hand touching the hat. It appears to be a trial piece as he is wearing a black hat and has a gold coloured glove, whereas it was eventually issued with a green hat and white glove.
All the other colours are again different to the standard issue. Also the smile is completely different to the standard issue. 6.5 inches tall and is offered for sale in generally good DISPLAY condition but unfortunately it does have a feint hairline crack running down from the back of his tight ear and across the base (see photos). It looks like this was spotted in the factory when produced and it was over painted on his purple collar which is now slightly browner in colour.
As you can see from the photos it displays beautifully. It is fully marked on the base with the Royal Doulton stamp and the words "Property of Royal Doulton Tableware Ltd".
The reference number for this figure would be D6834. I have included lots of photos, please take a close look at these as they form a large part of the description.
