The most comprehensive book available on Royal Doulton ceramic character and toby jugs. Lavishly illustrated with 1,760 large photographs of over 800 separate jugs and derivatives. Includes photos of every production piece of the past century, plus more than 100 prototype jugs, many never seen before in print, and scores of photographs of trial colourway jugs. The scope, details and pictorial abundance set this book apart from any other reference on the subject. Four major sections provide, in alphabetical order by character, a large colour photograph of each character in all of its sizes; a biographical or historical profile including size, modeller and model number; and production history. Photographs of backstamps, trial colourways, and close-ups of intricate handles. Prototype jugs that never made it into production are given similar treatment throughout the book. A substantial Appendix provides lists and tables to help readers navigate through the sizes, types, backstamps, modellers, model numbers, etc., and pre-prototype clay models. This book is an essential reference book for serious Royal Doulton jug collectors, general antiques and collectibles enthusiasts, and dealers.
