Royal Doulton mini character jug of Dick Turpin with a pistol handle, brown hat with his mask up wearing a green coat and white cravat. Designed by Charles Noke and Harry Fenton, these were made between 1940 – 1960. Size: 2.25 inches high. Dick Turpin (1705 – 1739) joined forces with fellow highwayman Tom King, whom he accidentally shot. Before he died, King betrayed him. Dick Turpin was hanged in 1739 for the murder of an Epping Forest gamekeeper. The first style of the Dick Turpin jug has the mask up on the brim of the tricorn, and a pistol forms the handle.
