Here is another Tiny Character Jug from Royal Doulton depicting 'Fat Boy.' Fat Boy was modeled after Dickens' Joe, the Fat Boy, in The Pickwick Papers. He has a fringe of red hair and is wearing a deep blue coat with yellow buttons in three vertical rows. One of the Original Twelve Tinies, Fat Boy was designed by Leslie Harradine and Harry Fenton as number D6142 and was produced from 1940 to 1960. These Tiny Character Jugs were difficult and expensive to produce because of their small size. Painting was done by the artist balancing the tiny jug on the end of his little finger. Production ceased during the War and resumed in 1947 until the Tinies were discontinued in 1960.
Sometimes called Toby mugs, this tiny, porcelain character jug measures 1-inch in diameter and 1-3/8 inches tall. The backstamp bears the words "Royal Doulton - Made in England" written in a circle surrounding "Fat Boy." Only the first six Tinies had the name on the bottom.
