A LARGE Royal Doulton - "PADDY"
A musical toby jug which plays "The Irish Jig"
Paddy stands at 6 inches or 15 centimetres tall
To activate the music, wind up the mechanism. To stop the music, simply set the jug down on a flat surface.
From what I can find out on the internet, I believe the Toby Jug was made at some time between 1937 and 1960.
Considering its age, the jug is in a very good condition. There are some very minor marks to the glaze. Please see the photos. There are no visible cracks.
There's a label on the underside which reads " THIS JUG HAS A GENUINE THORENS SWISS MOVEMENT WHICH MUST NOT BE IMMERSED IN WATER"
