Fat Boy figurine - Royal Doulton 1939-1949

Fat Boy figurine produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1939-1949. Joe, or the Fat Boy, is one of the inimitable characters depicted in the 1837 novel, "The Pickwick Papers", by Charles Dickens. The servant of Mr. Wardle, his rotund form is no doubt due to his gargantuan appetite and somnolence. He falls asleep at every opportunity despite the calls of jolly old Wardle. Eatables and drinkables are all that will raise the Fat Boy from his slumber. His smile and downward gaze portrayed herein are undoubtedly due to his anticipation of a large helping of rook pie.
