Tony Weller character jug miniature gray - Lancaster and Sandland circa 1940

Tony Weller character jug miniature size wearing a gray hat and produced by Lancaster and Sandland of Hanley, England, circa 1940. Tony Weller, the coach driver and repository of Cockney wisdom, is a popular character from Charles Dickens' "Pickwick Papers", first published in 1836. He is the father of Sam Weller, Mr. Pickwick's manservant. Experience of life has turned him into something of a philosopher, mistrustful of "vidder" and a staunch believer in the virtue of a "haliby." His wife, Susan, is the proprietor of the Marquis and Granby Inn in Dorking. Susan falls in with the hypocritical Reverend Stiggins, of the Brick Lane Temperance Association, who the frequently imbibing Tony later exposes.
