Mae West character jug colorway modeled by Colin M. Davidson and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1983-1986. Mae West (1892-1980) was an entertainer from the age of five and billed as The Baby Vamp. Her raunchiness grew as she did, and in 1926 the buxom star created a scandal with her first play, "Sex", which she wrote and directed on Broadway. Mae West made her screen debut in 1932 in "Night after Night". Equally sensational film roles followed where she specialized in flamboyant roles. Playing opposite Cary Grant in the fast-paced film, "She Done Him Wrong", Mae utters one of the most famous cinematic lines, "Why don't you come on up and see me sometime?" which is so often misquoted. Not only immortalized on the screen, Mae West's name was given to an airman's inflatable life jacket during World War II, alluding to the generous bosom of this famous sex symbol. A umbrella with a bow form the handle of this jug.
