Auld Mac tiny character jug - Royal Doulton 1946-1960

Auld Mac tiny character jug modeled by Harry Fenton and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1946-1960. Auld Mac has been the subject of numerous anecdotes typifying the canny, thrifty Scot as popularly conceived. In one music hall song popularized by Sir Harry Lauder he tells of a visit to London during which, before he even had time to turn around, "Bang went saxpence." This song in turn is based on a Punch cartoon of December, 1868, the caption running (to a townsman supposed to be in London on business): "E-eh, Mac! Ye're sune hame again!" Mac: "E-eh, it's just a ruinous place, that! Mun, a had na' been there abune twa hoores when Bang-went Saxpence!" A brier forms the handle of this jug.
