North American Indian character jug - Royal Doulton 1967-1991

North American Indian character jug modeled by Max Henk and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1967-1991. The Native American was christened "Indian" by Christopher Columbus who thought he had reached India when he had in fact landed in America. The North American Indians are split into about 250 different tribes across Canada and the United States, each with its own language and way of life. This jug is based on the Chief of the Blackfoot tribe, one of the groups of buffalo hunters in the northern Plains. His headdress is made of eagle feathers that would have taken many years to collect and were thought to bestow the wearer with some of the eagle's power. The Indians of the Northwest coast carve totem poles in honor of their chiefs and these are placed near the entrance to their dwellings. A Kwakiutl tribal pole forms the handle of this jug. Character jugs with the Canadian Centennial Series backstamp were only produced in 1967.
