Reginald Mitchell Toby Jug
This rare Reginald Mitchell Toby Jug will be a highlight of our next Fine Art Sale, to be held on 24th September 2016. This rare jug has the famous Clarice Cliff name associated with it as she was working at the Wilkinson factory during the 1940's.
We have managed to locate another jug which has the back stamp showing that the jug was made by Wilkinson and signed by Clarice Cliff, which authenticates the identification of the Toby jug.
The Toby jug that will be in our auction does not have any of the above markings.
Reginald Mitchell (1895 - 1937) was born in Congleton Road, Butt Lane, near Stoke-On-Trent. He was the designer of the Spitfire which was first flown in 1936, and which played a huge part in the Battle of Britain.
The Reginald Mitchell Toby Jug was produced in the 1940's as part of a set with Churchill and Chamberlain but were only produced for a very short period of time.
