Tiny Royal Doulton Enigma!

Post by MatW on March 6th 2011, 3:40 pm

I recently acquired a Tiny Royal Doulton character jug at auction which is stamped underneath Edward VII| D6993. I have put it E-bay to sell on, but was contacted by a buyer in South Africa who says that it is Henry V (D6994). I have to admit that the figurine does look more 15th century in dress that early 20th C, so maybe it is wrong.

Can anyone ID the jug from the photo below please? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Typically the Doulton Price Guide does not have a photo of D6993. However the photos of Henry V *D6994) are completely different. I do not own a copy of A Century of Royal Doulton Character and Toby Jugs as I cannot afford the £100 cost.

Anyone like to take a stab at this piece, got it today for free

Post by geheime geschiedenis on June 2nd 2011, 9:36 pm

Hello Everyone,
I do appreciate the kind words said by the starting members that have viewed my thread.
I did get a piece, and then thought about it for a while, and almost did not put it on, as I really think it doesnt qualify.
you can be the judge.
Please I welcome all crtiques.

Take care

just a note before i get the clothing off the line, i have red sky at night, redsky in the morning barn still burning, i hope its 40 degrees friday.

at any rate. I just wanted everyone to know, that the piece here has a silver top band around it, that is the tarnished piece i never even noticed it
till i got it home, and saw 4 silver hallmarks london 1897, but with a 1902 backstamp, would they have had these jugs already silvered uped, and then add the salt glazed and backstamp later or were they using the new backstamp as early as 1897, i know this would never be a barlow piece, as hannah was very animal like and i dont think annah either did salt glaze, please correct me if iam wrong.

everyone have a great evening, and no hard feelings on the slow pics, deal??????

These relief moulded pieces were based on designs by George Tinworth, although I believe individual artists were encouraged to come up with their own variations.

The silver band is interesting. I'm not sure that this is original, I have heard that people fitted them to cover up damage. The fact that it has earlier date marks than the jug makes me wonder whether the band has been re-purposed from another jug.

The jug can't be 1897, the Royal Warrant was only granted in 1901 and it is well documented that this mark (the first to say Royal) was used from 1902.

Your 100 percent on the royal bit, that is documented, I never heard of the bit about covering up broken bits, I will say this on ruby lane they have one and it says close to the same info, same size, and also same pattern, only thing is pattern number im sorry date number is 6446 i believe i saw i wont link that site but just did some cheking around. I want to sell it off.

it is not even my style at all. I have two of these pieces but i believe also the other is a lambeth doulton, so a bit earlier, i also have soem nice grauated ink bottle denby bourne, and that is all the way up to the ink jug.

i appreciate all the info's on this thread. I will shine the silver up, and get the hallmarks photographed with a 10x loupe so we can get some provenance on this piece. that ruby lane piece is outragously priced.

Re: Royal Doulton (England)

The "Harvest Ware" ranges were first produced in about 1815 when the company was called Doulton & Watts, and have nothing to do with George Tinworth. The Doulton factories were awarded the royal warrent in 1901 but didn't use it in the backstamps until early in 1902. Special moulds were made so that an E.P.N.S or silver rim could be fitted by Jewellers, this was a common practice from about 1880 until about 1940, quite a few factories supplied items ready for fittings this way. The silver rim should be flush to the body below it.
Are you quite sure about the hallmark dates, although it is quite possible a jeweller made a batch up and that one sat on the bottom of the pile for a couple of years. I have 2 identical 1pint tankards, 1 hallmarked for 1903 and the other 1904.
Your shape number 5406 is relative to it being Harvest ware on a jug, my tankards have the number 5013, the numbers and factory mark have to be impressed when the clay is still 'wet', and would be very hard to do when dry and impossible after firing.

Enormous Doulton Lambeth jug

Post by Guest on August 19th 2014, 6:00 pm

Weighs a massive 5.556kg and 14.5 ", Would this have been used as a jug as I would not be able to pick it up if it was full?

I've recently acquired an old copy of Goddens but the mark is not in there, can anyone help with age/use etc.  THANKS  Happy

Somewhere between 1869-1891, when "England" was added.
But as it's a non-decorative item, then probably before 1880.

The company was Doulton & Co. Ltd from 1854 to 1993 so that doesn't really narrow the age of the jug down and like you say I haven't been able to find the exact mark either. It does look like the marks that were used from 1869 to 1877 though.

Other things that might suggest that age is that there is no England in the mark and the fact that it is a plain white/cream coloured jug suggests that it was for industrial or trade use rather than domestic.

Snap SP!
Have you measured the capacity? the numbers may relate to that, or just simply a
shape number.

Thanks SP/Denby for all your help  Happy . I just posted back but my message has disappeared.

I have roughly calculated it would hold approx' 16 litres, so over 20kg full. I'm not sure the handle could survive that weight  Shrugs

It is stoneware and would withstand the weight but from your calculation it would have held around 3.5 gallons so the 2 and E don't seems to be relate directly to the capacity.

It's about a tenth of a barrel of beer so a handy size.

SP around 20 years ago when I was a student in my 20s I worked in a remote pub on saddleworth moor and we used to serve beer from earthenware jugs/from the barrel.

It was like going back in a time warp , haven't been there since but I bet they still do it that way.
