Very Rare Royal Doulton Character Jug- 'ard Of 'earing' - D6588- 1964 / 1967:
A Once in a Lifetime opportunity to acquire a Jewel in the Royal Doulton Character Jug Crown!!
'Ard of 'Earing, a character jug produced by Royal Doulton for a very limited period , 1964-1967. David Biggs, the designer, had the very clever idea of a cupped handle for the jug handle. However, the jug did not sell well and, hence, the very short production run - but has since become a very rare andhighly desirable jug.
This wily Dickensian character complains of being 'ard of 'earing' and cups his hand to his ear. Perhaps if offered a glass of foaming ale, his earing would improve!!
The jug is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or crazing. The jug measures 7.5"/19cms high.
