Peggy Davies toby jug modeled by Douglas V. Tootle and produced by Peggy Davies Ceramics for Kevin Francis Ceramics of Stoke-on-Trent, England, in a 1993 limited edition of 500. Margaret (Peggy) Davies (1924 - 1999) was born in the heart of the Staffordshire pottery industry. As a teenager, she found a job as a part-time assistant with Clarence Cliff, and then in 1939 she joined Royal Doulton as an assistant to Cecil Noke. At the same time, Peggy started a small workshop at her home. She went on to become one of Royal Doulton's most respected and prolific figurine artists.
