Tige sugar bowl - Lancaster and Sandland circa 1950

Tige sugar bowl produced by Lancaster and Sandland of Hanley, England, circa 1950. Buster Brown, a comic book character created in 1902, shared many of his adventures with his dog Tige, an American Pit Bull Terrier. Tige was thought to be the first “talking pet” featured in comics, though his speech went unnoticed by adults. The pair were eventually featured in silent movies as well, such as “Buster Brown to the Rescue.” Later on, the Brown Shoe company created a children’s brand called “Buster Brown & Co.” and featured Buster’s faithful companion Tige in much of their branding and advertising.
