This Royal Doulton 2-1/2 inch Miniature character jug is a detailed depiction of the bust of John Falstaff. Wearing a russet colored coat with black trim, his cap is adorned with matching plumes which form the handle of the jug. His weathered face, intelligent eyes, and full gray beard are a great tribute to Shakespeare's fictitious character.
Made by Royal Doulton sometime after 1949, likely in the 1960s or 70s, the lack of Registration Numbers suggests a 1960s to 70s vintage.
This Bone China character jug, though not strictly circular, measures roughly 2-inches in diameter and 2-1/2 inches high.
It bears the familiar Royal Doulton standard backstamp which includes "Falstaff, D 6513, COPR 1949, Doulton & Co Limited."
There are no condition issues.
