Jeff Astle character jug produced by Peggy Davies Ceramics of Stoke-on-Trent, England, in a 1997 limited edition of 1,500. Jeffrey Astle (1942-2002) was an English professional footballer who played the majority of his career as a center-forward for West Bromwich Albion. Nicknamed "the King" by the club's fans, he played 361 games for them and scored 174 goals. He also won five caps for England without scoring. The jug was commissioned by the West Bromwich Albion Football Club and was modeled by Ray Noble. It was intended to be a part of The Managers Series by Noble Ceramics. The handle features the 1968 FA Cup and a crown on the front, the Jeff Astle Gates at The Hawthorns on the back, and the club's nickname, "The Baggies", and "Astle is King" incised on the side.
