Doulton Lambeth Toby Philpot Jug Pitcher Royal Doulton 1890s As Is Treacle Glaze
This is an early pitcher or jug made by Royal Doulton, England, then called Doulton Lambeth for the works name in Staffordshire, England.
The jug or pitcher is salt glazed stoneware in a molded relief or sprig design called Toby Philpot or Tam O'Shanter after the heavy drinking characters with a 2 color brown treacle glaze.
The jug measures 6.5 inches high, was made 1890-1900 and has sustained some damage over it's long life. The base of the handle has had a very old crack repaired with a metal rivet. there are several rim and spout chips and there is a portion of the relief of a horse missing.
The jug is a venerable and interesting survival, is very collectible and would make a wonderful decorative accent or flower vase. Neat!
