Tony Weller figurine - Royal Doulton 1939-1949

Tony Weller figurine produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1939-1949. 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.
