One of the our requested Prototypes to date. The Clown with a Bucket sculpted in 1988/9 by Stanley Taylor for the popular Circus Series.
This version was rejected for the far less scary versions which made it into production. They should have released both as this one again seem to have superior detailing with a second (even scarier) clowns face having a bucket of custard poured onto it. Further details and pictures of this actual piece can be found on page 87 of A Century of Royal Doulton Character Jugs by Steve Mullins and David Fastenau. In pristine condition and 6 and 3 quarters inches in height. As everyone knows it is always difficult to price pieces like this so we are starting off with what we think is a relatively high price and are opening it up to offers.
Go as low or as high as you like with your offers - each will be considered and who knows? The Museum is currently closed to the public due to this damn pandemic but we will be re opening as soon as the safety guidelines allow.
