Pickwick figurine - Royal Doulton 1949-1968

Pickwick figurine produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1949-1968. 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". A bald-headed and bespectacled man, the eloquent Pickwick is General Chairman of the club he founded. A Corresponding Society is formed to report to the Club the adventures and journeys of the Society members and observations of character and manners. The kind-hearted, unworldly Pickwick gets into a number of scrapes, including being sent to court in a breach of promise suit brought by Mrs. Bardell, resulting in a spell in Fleet Prison. This experience dampens the spirit and usual good humor of Mr. Pickwick, but once released he lives contentedly, following learned pursuits.
