Because of the backstamp this is a rarely seen Character Jug. I have only seen one once before and that was over twenty years ago. This particular jug was only issued in 1936 hence the scarcity. It is in generally good condition with no chips or cracks although there is some minor crazing.There are quite a number of white flecks showing where the painter was not as thorough as they should have been but that is not unusual for a jug from this era. There is just one area that I need to highlight and that is on her hat, to the left of her face, where there is a larger (3mm) patch of white (see picture 2) and where the surrounding area is slightly rough to the touch.
Again, this is not unusual for a jug from this era but should be mentioned for the sake of completeness. She stands approximately 3.25 inches or 8.3 cm high. I have shown numerous pictures highlighting the above points and these can all be enlarged. I think the pictures plus the description above give a good indication of the condition but if I can tell you any more please ask.For more expensive items these may be the only options offered. (this excludes weekends and Bank Holidays). After receipt of cleared funds. Multiple items over 2KG will be expensive to send to addresses outside the UK and it may be cheaper to send them in two parcels. It is said a picture is worth a thousand words. The pictures are an important part of the description therefore please check them to make sure that you are happy with the condition of the item as shown. If you would like additional pictures all you need to do is ask.
I describe all my items as accurately as I can and will always answer any questions as soon as possible. Please be aware that we don't claim to be experts in any area therefore if you think something should be included with an item but it is not in the description or not shown in a photograph then it is probably not included. If in doubt please ask. If you require an answer to a question please don't wait until just before the item ends.
