ABOUT

Toby jugs have been around since the early 18th century and although this guy is commonly called a Toby jug, he is not. This jaunty fellow is, actually, a Character jug. A Toby jug depicts a full body and head where a Character jug is just a bust or head. There is quite the distinction between jugs and mugs as well. A jug has a spout for pouring and a mug does not. So………..this is a Character Jug! Created by one of Royal Doulton’s most famous modelers, Harry Fenton, who was assistant to Charles J. Noke, the original art director at Royal Doulton when joining in the 1890’s. 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 must make this clown character jug yours.
