Most of the first jugs created by Royal Doulton were in the traditional toby jug style. It was the 1930's when Doulton designer Charles Noke conceived of focusing more on the face of a character that Royal Doulton coined the name "Characterjug" as a way to differentiate their jugs from the traditional style of toby jug. At the urging of designer Max Henk in the 1950's, the handles began to play an important part of theaestheticsof the jug. It was then plain handles started to be replaced with decorative handles which portrayed something relevant to the character depicted.Royal Doulton character jugs come in a variety of sizes with the most common being miniature, small and large. There have been some tiny and mid-sized produced as well, though they are not as common.It was again fameddesigner Charles Noke that used his character jugs idea as inspiration to create additional functional items like: tobacco jars, match stands, ash bowls, teapots, sugar bowls, lighters, napkin rings, wall vases and music boxes. Though produced in smaller numbers then their character jug counterparts, derivatives of character jugs are also extremely popular collectible items.

A brief history of the Toby and Royal Doulton Character Mugs' origins......
The 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.
The 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.
Doulton 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. style="text-decoration:none"
