Mr. Pickwick relief jug musical - Lancaster and Sandland circa 1950

Mr. Pickwick relief musical jug produced by Lancaster and Sandland of Hanley, England, circa 1950. Samuel Pickwick is the main protagonist in "The Pickwick Papers" (1836), the first novel by author Charles Dickens. One of the author's most famous and loved creations, Pickwick is a retired successful businessman and is the founder and chairman of the Pickwick Club, a club formed to explore places remote from London and investigate the quaint and curious phenomena of life found there. Although he is the main character in "The Pickwick Papers", Pickwick is mostly a passive and innocent figure in the story around whom the other more active characters operate. Having an almost childlike simplicity, Pickwick is loyal and protective toward his friends but is often hoodwinked by conmen and poseurs. A musical movement is built in to the base of this jug. A lamp post forms the handle of the jug.
