Mrs. Tiggy Winkle character jug produced by Royal Albert of Longton, England, in 1989. "The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle" is a children's book written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter. It was published by Frederick Warne & Co. in October 1905. Mrs. Tiggy-winkle is a hedgehog washerwoman who lives in a tiny cottage in the fells of the Lake District. A human child named Lucie happens upon the cottage and stays for tea. The two deliver freshly laundered clothing to the animals and birds in the neighborhood. Potter thought the book would be best enjoyed by girls, and, like most girls' books of the period, it is set indoors with a focus on housework. Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle's left hand and arm form the handle of this jug.
