This Royal Doulton character Toby jug is a wonderful, bright piece to be enjoyed; a rare collectors item.The Clown was originally decorated with brown hair but some much rarer red-haired versions exist with brighter face paint, including black eyebrows. After World War II, the decoration was completely changed and the clown has white hair.
There is some interesting information about Toby jugs here one has a hairline crack on the rim sadly, hence low starting price, but is otherwise in excellent condition.

17th July 2013. I contacted Royal Doulton direct today as someone asked if this jug is genuine since it is smaller than most found on the Internet. This is the message Royal Doulton sent back to me today: "Your jug is authentic, by colour back stamp & model. Is is variation colourway number 3 of 4. Variations 1 & 2 were produced between 1937-42 and yours was between 1951-55. Potting of earthenware has not always been an exact science, with expansions & contractions of moisture & body sometimes giving rise to variation.Variation number 4 was extremely rare indeed, with only one believed to exist!"
