Large Royal Doulton Character Jug - Cavalier With Goatee D6114 For Sale
This is an sale for a very rare large Royal Doulton Character Jug - The Cavalier, modelled with a goatee beard and a different ruff to the regular jug.
The Cavalier was initially issued with a goatee beard, but the jug was redesigned in 1950 and the beard, as well as the ruff, were altered.
According to the Mullins/Fastenau book 'A Century of Royal Doulton Character and Toby Jugs', less than 100 examples of this jug are thought to exist. Most are in private collections, and few ever become available.
The jug is in excellent condition for it's age - there is some crazing both inside the jug and to the base which I have tried to show in the photos, but it is not severe and is commensurate with the age of the jug. There is no crazing to the face or rear of the jug itself and thus nothing is visible when on display.
The international postage cost is £16 to Europe and £27 to the rest of the world. I regret that I cannot offer overseas postage discounts on any less than 3 large character jugs due to the prohibitive cost of posting overseas.

I am happy to answer any questions regarding the jug.
Just a bit of info about me.........
My name is John Wadsworth, I am a 32 year old Solicitor from Solihull in the West Midlands. You can find my details either on the Law Society website or that of my firm, S.V Wadsworth & Co.
I have been collecting character jugs for around 5 years, and have owned most (but not all!) regular jugs in that time. I specialise in collecting colour trial and prototype jugs, which I buy from private collections of collectors all over the world. Several of the jugs in my collection can be found in the Supplement to the Steve Mullins/David Fastenau book 'A Century of Royal Doulton Character and Toby Jugs'. I am always on the lookout for more!
I only ever really sell to raise money to purchase more. I also offer to buy collections, as I enjoy selling jugs on , and conversing with the other collectors around the world that buy them from me.
I am always happy to chat to other collectors around the world, so feel free to send me a message if you are after a particular piece, or if you have any questions about any of my listings. I am also happy if ever anybody wishes to collect a jug in person from my home.
Are you thinking of selling all or part of your collection? If so, send me a message, as I may well be willing to purchase it from you.
Depending on the number of pieces I am able to come and collect your Doulton, saving you the hassle of having to package and post them, as well as avoiding the risk of damage in the post.
I am able to come and pay in cash, and therefore save you any financial costs involved in selling your collection.
If you are interested, please send me a message, and I can have completed the deal within a few days!
