  • $65.00


This "mini" Royal Doulton character jug measures just 60mm tall and 55mm wide and depicts the Charles Dickens character of Mr Micawber. The jug is from the Charles Dickens series and was issued from 1940-1960. In Charles Dickens’s “David Copperfield”, Wilkins Micawber is Copperfield’s landlord and friend. A sanguine idler, Micawber unmasks Uriah Heep as a villain and is rewarded with passage to Australia, where he settles happily in a prominent neighbourhood. The jug was designed by Leslie Harradine and Harry Fenton. The jug is in excellent vintage condition and has no chips, cracks, crazing or repairs.
