The Reverend Stiggins was quite fond of his drink, almost as fond as he was of donations. He sponged off of the Wellers in the Dickens novel The Pickwick Papers. Here we see him, likely well in his cups, with his nose turned up at everything and everyone. Put him in a cabinet where he belongs and can cause no more trouble! He measures just under 4 inches tall and is in perfect condition, if perfect could describe his lot. He's quite old, having been made from 1922 to 1932, because he has the old Doulton England backstamp. A very desirable example due to the older marking!
Most of these figures were first introduced in 1922, and were retired in the early 1980s. The oldest are marked Doulton England. Newer versions have various other backstamps.
