We have already looked at Royal Doulton’s ever popular series of a Limited Edition Loving Cups and Jugs, and this series of 7 smaller jugs fit perfectly with their larger, rarer counterparts.
First introduced in the same decade as the larger Jugs and Cups, this set of 7 bear out Charles Noke’s passion for Dickens.
Here are the details for this charming set:
D5584 “Old Curiosity Shop” 1935-60
D5617 “Oliver Twist” 1936-60
D5756 “Pickwick Papers” 1937-60
D6285 “Oliver Asks For More” 1949-60
D6286 “Oliver Twist” tankard 1949-60
D6291 “Old London” 1949-60
D6292 “Peggoty” 1949-60
As always the last ones with the shorter production runs are the most difficult to find today, but a full collection is possible and they make a super display.
There were other relief or embossed Dickens wares but that is for another time! Happy collecting!
