This beautiful, miniature Royal Doulton Toby jug is a wonderful caricature depiction of John Barleycorn. It is a small piece, round in shape with a cheery, happy face on the front. The main color of the jug is an earthy brown and on the back it is marked "John Barleycorn, Old Lad"
The mark on the base of the piece gives us an accurate production date of 1940. The number 13 in the upper right corner of the mark allows us to date the year of production precisely.
This piece measures 2 1/2" in height and width. It is in excellent condition with no chips, nicks or cracks. The features are hand painted with bright, rosy cheeks and blue eyes.
