Honest Measure stoneware covered jar tan - Royal Doulton 1924-1929

Honest Measure stoneware covered jar used as a tea caddy wearing a tan waistcoat and brown jacket, modeled by Harry Simeon and produced by Royal Doulton of Lambeth, England, between 1924 and 1929. Honest Measure is a form of the Squat Toby sitting on the ground with his left leg down and right leg up, a churchwarden pipe in his left hand and a full mug of ale in his right hand and is based on the Squat Tobies of the 19th century. Honest Measure is inspired by the quote "Honest Measure - Drink at Leisure", a motto he is quite willing to live up to. Honest Measure's hat is removeable for storing used tea leaves and bags. This is an advertising jar for Ye Old Cock Tavern of Fleet Street.
