Discover the Unique History Behind Our Exclusive Character Jugs Collection

  • 1 min read

We are thrilled to present an extraordinary collection of totally unique Character Jugs. This exceptional collection features some of the rarest and most exquisite pieces from Royal Doulton, each with a rich history and unique backstory.

The Origins of Stoke-on-Trent's Character Jugs

The city of Stoke-on-Trent was founded in 1910 through the amalgamation of six smaller Staffordshire pottery towns: Stoke, Hanley, Burslem, Tunstall, Longton, and Fenton. In 1960, to celebrate the city's Golden Jubilee, Royal Doulton produced a very limited edition of three large-size character jugs: Bacchus, Capt. Henry Morgan, and Izaak Walton. These jugs, featuring a special backstamp, were given to dignitaries attending the Jubilee celebrations, courtesy of the Lord Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent, Alderman Harold Clowes, and Lady Mayoress, Miss Christine Clowes.

A Rare Opportunity for Collectors

This unique trio was purchased directly from the Royal Doulton archives by Pascoe and Company in 1999 and sold into a private collection. Now, these extraordinary pieces have re-emerged, offering another lucky collector the chance to add them to their own collection.

Why These Character Jugs Are Special

  • Limited Edition: Very few of these jugs were produced, making them incredibly rare.
  • Special Backstamp: Each jug features a unique backstamp commemorating the 1960 Golden Jubilee.
  • Historical Significance: These jugs were originally gifted to dignitaries, adding to their allure and value.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to own a piece of history. Explore our collection and find the perfect addition to your jug collection today.
