Jarge character jug modeled by Harry Fenton and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1950-1960. Christened George, this archetypal country bumpkin's fellow rustics pronounce his name Jarge in a typical West County accent. His ruddy complexion tells its own tale of long days in the summer sun asleep in the hay. Certainly not a handsome fellow, his proclivity for straw sucking can be quite irritating if indulged to excess. When there is work to be done in the fields, he may very well be found in the hayloft with a milkmaid. Perhaps Jarge's peccadilloes are the significance of the two entwined hearts featured on the rear of this jug. Jarge's scarf forms the handle of the jug. Along with this large size, a small size (D6295) was also produced.
