Windsor Davies character jug - Bairstow Manor circa 2020

Windsor Davies character jug produced by Bairstow Manor Pottery of Hanley, England, in a 2020 limited edition of 15. Windsor Davies (1930-2019) was a British actor. He is best remembered for playing Battery Sergeant Major Williams in the sitcom It Ain't Half Hot Mum over its entire run. The show's popularity resulted in Davies and his co-star Don Estelle achieving a UK number one hit with a version of "Whispering Grass" in 1975. He later starred with Donald Sinden in Never the Twain (1981-1991), and his deep Welsh-accented voice was heard extensively in advertising voice-overs. The toby jug depicts Davies in his role as Sergeant Williams with Don Estelle as Gunner Sugden and Michael Bates as Bearer Rangi Ram forming the handle. The jug was commissioned by Terry Leader and modeled by Ray Noble.
