This adorable vintage Peter Rabbit porcelain character jug is from highly regarded British Pottery, Beswick. Beswick was founded in 1892 and is primarily known for producing high quality porcelain animal figurines, including those characters introduced by author Beatrix Potter. Beswick was sold to Royal Doulton in 1969, and Doulton ceased using the Beswick backstamp in 1989.

Peter Rabbit had his debut in Potter's much beloved book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, published in 1902 by Frederick Warne & Co. The popular children's story tells the tale of Peter and his travails in Mr. McGregor's vegetable garden. Disregarding his mother's advice, Peter ventures into the garden and gorges himself to the point of becoming ill, barely managing to escape with his life. His outfit, shed during his frantic attempt to slip between the slats of the garden fence, ends up clothing Mr. McGregor's scarecrow and serves as a warning to other naughty children to do as they are told. Chagrined and nauseated, Peter slinks home and is put to bed by his mother while his sisters enjoy a feast of blackberries, bread and milk.

This hard to find Peter Rabbit Beswick character jug is in pristine condition, and captures Peter's sweet yet incorrigible personality. It is free of chips, cracks, crazing or repairs and is marked with the BP-4 Beswick stamp on its base, dating it to 1988 or 1989. The piece stands 3" tall - very cute!

Doulton ceased production of the Beartix Potter range in 2002, making these items - particularly ones with the Beswick mark - highly collectible and much sought after on the secondary market. This lovely character jug is an excellent example of Beswick's work and would make a wonderful addition to other Beswick pieces, or could serve as a fantastic baby gift. Very special and destined to be a treasured part of anyone's collection.
