A Century of Royal Doulton
Character Jugs
Collections can begin in many different ways. A surprise gift can start a
lifetime passion or it could be a legacy that creates an instant collection.
One thing is for certain: the first acquisition is rarely alone for long!
Part of the fun of collecting character jugs is finding out more about the
characters behind each one and the symbolism of their handles. For
bookworms there are many characters from literature, beginning with the
novels of Charles Dickens - a particular favorite of Royal Doulton’s original
art director, Charles Noke. Collectors interested in England’s past will find
an abundance of kings and queens, colorful London characters and military
heroes to create a historical display of jugs. The sea has been particularly
important in British history and has been the inspiration for many seafaring
characters, perfect for a nautical collection. Patriotic Americans can
collect presidents, Civil War generals, Hollywood film stars and Wild
West Cowboys. With so many exciting choices, which series will you start
collecting next?

All of us have a list of literary characters that
have touched us in some way or left an indelible
imprint on our cultural imagination. There are
so many characters from literature that have
made an impression on us long after the novel’s
plot has faded from our memory. For more than
a century, the artists and modelers at the Royal
Doulton Studios have brought some of the most
beloved characters from our favorite stories to life
in the form of a character or toby jug. Charles
Noke, Henry Fenton and David Biggs are among
some of the great Royal Doulton artists that have
produced jugs for the range.

Shakespeare D6689
Large $150
William Shakespeare is considered the greatest dramatist the world
has known and the first poet to write in the English language.
No other writer’s plays have been produced so many times in so
many countries and no poet’s verse has been so widely read in so
many lands. His works have been translated into more languages
than any other book in the world except the Bible. Behind his
incomparable creative power lay a wide acquaintance with men
and women of all types in bustling Elizabethan London as well
as an amazing knowledge of a wide variety of subjects from
music and law to seamanship and politics.
