Approximately 5 Wide x 7.5 Tall and 7 Front to Back (Nose to Handle). But essentially appears Pristine/ Near Mint. Toby Jugs have been around since the early 18th century and although this Ceramic Vessel is often called a Toby Jug, it is not. This type of Ceramic Vessel was created/invented by Royal Doulton to modernize the Toby Jug starting in the 1930s and thus the Character Jug was born!
A Toby Jug depicts a full body and head whereas a Character jug is a head and shoulders. There is also a difference between Jugs and Mugs! A jug has a spout for pouring and a mug does not. So this is a Royal Doulton Character Jug! This Clown Jug was Created by one of Royal Doultons most famous modelers, Harry Fenton, who was assistant to Charles J.Noke, the original art director at Royal Doulton when joining in the 1890s. Fenton adapted the original impressionistic style to a more realistic than stylized appearance for many of his pieces.
Until the 1990s Fenton had been the most prolific modeler with 26 character jugs, 15 toby jugs and numerous other items. Fenton passed away in 1953 shortly after creating this iconic The Clown Character jug in 1951. You simply must make this RARE clown character jug yours.
