Mae West character jug colorway with gold accents modeled by Colin M. Davidson and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, in 1983. Mae West (1892 - 1980) was an entertainer from the age of five and billed as The Baby Vamp. Her raunchiness grew with her 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 and equally sensational were her film roles in Hollywood 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 so often misquoted, "Why don't you come up sometime, see me?" 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. Her suggestiveness is incorporated into the backstamp of this celebrity jug; "When I'm good, I'm very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better." The handle of the jug features an umbrella with bow tied around it. Note the gold earrings and gold on the umbrella handle.
