Dating royal doulton character jugs
His son, Henry Doulton, established the Lambeth and Burslem Studios to create unique art pottery.Sir Henry was knighted for his services to the ceramic industry and continuing royal patronage from Queen Victoria and King Edward VII led to the title Royal Doulton in 1901.We showcase the largest selection of retired Royal Doulton figurines in the world, including rarities, prototypes and limited editions.Famous artists represented in the HN figurine collection include Charles Noke, Leslie Harradine and Peggy Davies.Characteristic marks for the Royal Doulton firm, including registration marks, are found on the underside of the jug.By the 1960s, the rule that multiple registration marks must appear on the toby jugs was reconsidered. Some Royal Doulton toby jugs command thousands of dollars from collectors.

The Royal Doulton firm made it a practice to mold the name of the character into the back of each jug too.
Identifying Toby Jugs In 1933, Charles Noke designed a series of toby jugs based on famous figures from history or literature.
