D5844 Royal Doulton Old Charley Tobacco Jar Character Jug derivative RARE
Our 30 years professional trading in antiques and collectables is your guarantee. A super scarce Royal Doulton Old Charley tobacco jar D5844 - issued between 1937 and 1960 this one was issued in 1940 - see the 13 to the right of the base stamp, you add that to 1927 [the first year the date coding system was used] and hey presto - made in 1940! Designed by Charles Noke Approx 14cms (5 1/2") tall Approx 14.5cms (5 3/4") diameter Condition: No obvious crazing. Presents as perfect, but has a restored lid (only detectable by the not "gloss" finish of the paint on the lid when compared to the jar itself). Looking extremely closely with a trained eye, there has been some chipping to the edge rim of the lid - and it has been conserved, professionally to museum standard. There is no rubber grommet/washer to the inner rim of the jar (they perish over decades, being rubber) and close inspection with a trained eye reveals a slight hairline on the inner rim (where the jar seals - probably has been overtightened at some stage in it's life). Overall this is a very scarce, early item, and in a cabinet, in a collection will present beautifully - and the bonus is that you are not having to pay the really high price of a truly perfect example.
What I RECOMMEND is not screwing the lid down - just placing it inside the jar and blu tacking it in place (or sourcing a rubber grommet to fit the inner rim so you don't have the pressure of the lid tight against the jar). Realistically speaking, these are so rare, finding a better example could take decades. Which is included on all of our pieces.
