Mr. Pickwick & Sam Weller two-sided liquor container designed by Graham Tongue and Harry Sales and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, in 1985 limited edition of 2,000 for Pick-Kwik Wines & Spirits. The adventures of Mr. Samuel Pickwick and the other members of the Corresponding Society of the Pickwick Club form the plot of Charles Dickens' novel "The Pickwick Papers", published in 1836. A bald headed and bespectacled man, the eloquent Pickwick is General Chairman of the club he founded. The son of the coachman Tony Weller and faithful manservant of Mr. Pickwick, Sam Weller is one of the most popular, and to many critics the greatest conceived, of Dickens' characters. With his native charm and endless stream of anecdotes and witticisms he is the most quoted and copied character in the "Pickwick Papers". A Jim Beam bottle forms the handle of this liquor container.
