No Reserve Large Royal Doulton Character Jug "w. C. Fields " D6674 Toby Mug For Sale
LargeRoyal Doulton Character Jug "W C Fields" D6674Royal Doulton of England are world-renowned
for their creative collectible lines of character jugs, toby
jugs and derivative items.Each piece is hand-made and hand-painted by a well-trained RoyalDoulton artist which accounts for each item being a truly unique creation. Their attention to detail, precision, and quality standards are why Royal Doulton collectibles are some of the most highly sought after in the world.This jug is titled "WC Fields" and is numbered D6674. He was designed by David B. Biggs between1983-1986.Standing at 7.75 inches tall and weighing 1 lb. 15 oz; this is a large-sized jug. The jug depicts the comedic star of the stage and screen from the early 1900's who was famous for his disdain for women, animals and children. The jug features Fields with fleshy jowls and a stern look upon his face. He is wearing a tie, yellow waist coat and black dress coat with a white flower in the lapel. He has a large gray top hat with a black band at the top and the handle is composed of a silver topped walking stick or cane. This item is in great condition, no crazing or chips. Point of note, where the cane handle joins the base, there is some lines that are possible cracks, and this was possibly repaired-but it does not look like the whole piece was cracked, just looks like small surface cracks. The handle itself where it attaches to his shoulder and his hat does not look like it was repaired, so we can't be sure if this bottom part was part of the manufacturing or if there was damage and it was repaired by a very good professional.

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. Whether its a character jug, toby jug or a derivative item; every pieceis hand-made and hand-painted by a well-trained RoyalDoulton artist which accounts for each one being a truly unique creation.
