Humpty Dumpty character jug green - Lingard circa 1950

Humpty Dumpty character jug in a green colorway produced by Lingard, Webster & Company of Tunstall, England, circa 1950. Humpty Dumpty is a character in an English nursery rhyme, probably originally a riddle and one of the best known in the English-speaking world. He is typically portrayed as an anthropomorphic egg, though he is not explicitly described as such. The first recorded versions of the rhyme date from late eighteenth-century England and the tune from 1870 in James William Elliott's National Nursery Rhymes and Nursery Songs. Its origins are obscure, and several theories have been advanced to suggest original meanings. Consisting of a sugar bowl, creamer and teapot, this character jug is a part of a Humpty Dumpty tea service set.
