A brief history of the Toby and Royal Doulton Character Mugs' origins......
first Toby jugs were created in the 1700's. The first one known was in
the form of a man sitting down wearing the traditional clothing of the
time period (a tricorn hat, stock around his neck, breeches and buckled
shoes.) The figure was normally created with a tankard, or large
drinking glass made of pewter or silver with a single handle and lid.
After this original figure there were creations of other stereotypical
figures like a convict, miner, and a drunk parson or preacher.
people given credit for creating the first Tobys as we know them were a
father and son team from Staffordshire in England, though they were a
far cry from the very vibrant and vividly colored ones we see today.
began making Toby jugs in the traditional manner dating back to 1815
but it wasn't until the 1920's when they added color. This inspired one
of the Doulton artists named Charles Noke, to think about the Toby
design in a different way. His vision had the jugs being more vibrant
and stylish and included using only the head and shoulders of the
character instead of the whole body. As inspiration for characters he
used English literature, history, and legend. It was 1934 before the
first of these character jugs was put into production. The first Doulton
character was John Barleycorn.
Due to the success of John
Barleycorn other mugs were soon to follow like: Old Charley, The Night
Watchman, Sairey Gamp, Parson Brown and Dick Turpin. It was two years
before a mug was created based on a real person. The first real person
who had a mug created in their likeness was by Doulton artist Herry
Fenton of John Peel, a famed huntsman who was immortalized in the song
"Do Ye Ken John Peel"
The most common feature of Royal Doulton
character jugs is their handles. The first jugs created by Doulton had
plain handles. Through the years they became much more decorative. For
example Dick Turpin, famed highway man had a gun for a handle, the
jailor had a keys for his handle. It was in the 1950's when Max Henk
became involved in their production that they gained even more creative
and significant importance.
