Footnotes

  • It is believed that only around six examples of this very rare jug were produced, immediately prior to the outbreak of World War Two in the Nile Street factory. Due to the outbreak of war, only a very few reached the retail outlets before the factory production was halted. In his booklet `Doulton Character Jugs' published 1976, Richard Dennis refers to the Maori as a pilot jug `of which a few were made for survey purposes'. In the mid-seventies none had actually surfaced in the market place.

    Two other examples of the Maori have been sold in these rooms, in May 1998, and December 2006.
