City Gent character jug modeled by Stanley J. Taylor and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1988-1991. With briefcase in hand and the "Financial Times" tucked securely under his arm, the City Gent wields his umbrella against the vagaries of the British climate. This smart executive can also be distinguished by his traditional bowler hat as he heads for his office in the heart of the City, the financial and business sector of London. Perhaps today he will be making profitable investment decisions for his clients, then strolling a few blocks to the West End to join his wife for dinner and a play before retiring. An umbrella forms the handle of this jug.
