The Fireman character jug designed by Jerry D. Griffith and modeled by Robert I. Tabbenor, and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1984-1991. Every small boy looks with envy upon the fireman's occupation, fighting fires and making daring rescues. Racing through the streets in their bright scarlet and black engine, siren clanging to alert pedestrians and traffic alike to their speedy approach, how efficiently the firemen arrive at the scene of the blaze is often a matter of life and death. However, not all calls to the fire brigade are so dire; occasionally a fireman's services may be needed to rescue an adventurous kitten stuck in a tree! The fireman's uniform is highly distinctive. A fire hose nozzle forms the handle of this jug.
