Royal Doulton Toby Character Mugs & Jugs
Doulton made Toby jugs in the traditional manner since 1815 but in the 1920's Harry Simeon added color.
This inspired Charles Noke, a Doulton artist to rethink the Toby jug tradition.
He pictured a more colorful and stylish jug based on the head and shoulders of a character rather than the full figure.
He had in mind characters from English song, literature, history and legend, made to appeal to future generations.
It took him almost ten years to be satisfied with the standards of design and production, but in 1934 the first character jug was launched.
He chose as his subject John Barleycorn, a figure symbolizing whisky.
John Barleycorn became such an instant success that Old Charley, the Night Watchman, Sairey Gamp, Parson Brown and Dick Turpin was added to the jug making.
Two years later the first character jug modeled on a real person was made with Herry Fenton's John Peel, a trend which has continued to the present day.
A common feature of the Royal Doulton character jugs is their handles. The first Royal Doulton Jugs generally had plain handles, with one or two exceptions, as some of the clown jugs had multi-colored handles. The handles on the Royal Doulton mugs & jugs became much more decorative through the years and eventually become one of the key features of the Royal Doulton Toby Jugs. The handles on the Royal Doulton mugs & jugs evolved through the years. The fancy decorative quality of the handles on the Royal Doulton Toby Mugs matched the overall style and theme of that Toby. Dick Turpin had a gun for a handle and the Jailer had a bunch of keys.It was during the 1950s that the handles achieved greater creative importance when Max Henk was involved in their production. His Long John Silver Toby had a parrot handle.

If you need to change the address to a work address or different home address, or if you are buying this item as a gift and you want us to ship this item to another person at a different address, paypal allows for you to make this change. Please do not email us and ask us to ship to a different address and do not use the message system to email us and give us a different address.

On boxes over 2 pounds or items that are large in nature, we ship by Fed Ex and our shipping price includes Fed Ex shipping with insurance and tracking. That means we must ship to a physical address. This address can be a home address or work address. Fed Ex DOES NOT SHIP TO P.O. BOX.
If your paypal address contains a Post Office Box, when you make payment you can select a "Gift Address" and include your physical home address or physical work address.
Thus, on heavy or large items, when you make your paypal payment, you must furnish us the physical address on your payment.
If an item is heavy (2 pounds or more) or large and you stillwish to have an item shipped to a post office box, email us and we will tell you the cost of that shipping, which will be more than Fed Ex, because we get a corporate discount and we pass that savings onto you. Our intent is to save you money. But, if you have special shipping requirements, we must charge for the actual cost of those requirements.
We Only ship bypriority mail to addresses outside of the United States.
We give our reasons below.
Based on the policies of both and Paypal, items shipped domestically and internationally must be shipped with tracking information in order for both the SELLER and BUYER to be protected by the Paypal Protection Plan. This requires that an item shipped internationallybe shipped by priority mail. The cost to ship a little envelope is now almost $30.00 for many countries and it increases for size and weight. We realize it is expensive to ship from one country to another, but those are the rates handed to us and you must be willing to pay them if you offer.We will not ship by First Class Mail because tracking and insurance is not available with this type of shipping. We will not ship by Priority Flat Rate either, because tracking and insurance is not available with Priority Flat Rate Postage. We wish there were more financially feasible ways to ship from one country to another and still have tracking and insurance to protect both the buyer and seller, but there are no other options at this time. Again,Flat Rate Priority does not offer tracking.So, please understand that we will follow the policyof and Paypal and ship with tracking - which means we only ship by PriorityMail to other countries and this is expensive.
If you offer, pleaseunderstand these costs. We will not change or alter this policy, because more and more people realize they can make a claim if no tracking was provided in the shipping and if no tracking is provided, a Seller will have the entire amount of money taken from their paypal account. We have already lost over $1200 from these false claims and we can no longer afford to ship an item without tracking.
We wish and Paypal would change their policy, but until they come up with a different policy, we will follow their policy which states, Sellers must provide proof of their shipment in the case of a claim. Sending the item by priority mail with tracking is the least expensive way to do this and provide proof and tracking that the item was sent and delivered.
We also must clearly state that our shipping charges do not include other fees that you may incur, such as custom fees, duties and taxes that your local country may impose on all packages coming into the country. There is also often delays in international shipping. We cannot control how long it will take for an item to arrive.
