A ROYAL DOULTON KINGSWARE WHISKEY JUG, “THE PIED PIPER” by Charles NOKE, 1902-22

A ROYAL DOULTON KINGSWARE WHISKEY JUG, “THE PIED PIPER” by Charles NOKE, 1902-22

This is a Kingsware baluster whiskey jug, decorated in the Arts and Crafts manner, in a muted naturalistic palette, by master pottery decorator, Charles Noke, with an image of the Pied Piper of Hamelin playing his flute.

Charles Nokes went to Doulton after serving for 16 years at Worcester factory, where he had trained under James Hadley.  Kingsware was the result of a Noke’s experiment with glaze.  Much of it was made for the Dewar’s Company for Scotch whiskey.

Doulton Kingsware whiskey jugs are both decorative and highly collectible.  This is fine example of Noke’s work, and would take pride of place in a collection of Kingsware.  It’s also a great gift for someone who collects unique bar ware, and would appreciate an unusual water pitcher to use when Scotch is served.

Marked:  Signed “Noke” on the front, on the lower, left hand corner, near the foot of the figure.  Black transfer mark on the bottom of the base, in use at the Doulton Burslem factory, Stoke-on-Trent, between 1902-22  (pictured).
