Royal Doulton character jug, small size, of the Pied Piper.
The jug is modeled as the head of the old tale's title character. He wears a deep green hat and the gold and burgundy "pied" clothing. The jug's handle is modeled to look like it is made of the character's pipe and three rats.
The piece measures about 4 inches high x 5 inches wide x 3-1/2 inches deep. It weighs about six and a half ounces.
The marks on the piece can be viewed in the photo accompanying this listing.
Condition: excellent, considering that it is several decades old. The glaze is still shiny, and there are no chips or cracks in the pottery.
