John Diefenbaker Character Jug

Created in the same spirit as the famous character jugs that the English factory Royal Doulton produced. I say “spirit” because the creator was the leading designer at Royal Doulton before emmigrating to Canada in 1956, when he brought this style of ceramics to the country. This Canadian Character Jug is part of a large series of famous canadians, including Lara Secord and more, and were created to celebrate the lives of key personalities of Canadian society. Mr. Asplin received many awards over the years and some of Royal Doulton’s most popular figurines were designed by him.
