Royal Doulton Eglinton Tournament Jug or Pitcher c1930

Imperial: 1.25 pint, 5.5 ins high
Metric: 0.75 ltr, 14 cm high

This is a fabulous jug in the Eglinton Tournament series. The Eglinton Tournament of 1839 was a re-enactment of a medieval joust and revel held at Eglinton Castle, Ayrshire, Scotland. It was organised by the 13th Earl Eglinton as a reaction to the omission of much traditional medieval pageantry from the Coronation of Queen Victoria in 1838. Doulton introduced the first of their Eglinton Tournament series ware in 1902, registered the design in 1904, increased the range in 1908 and are believed to have finally withdrawn it in 1928. There are seven scenes in the series, which appears in different colourways on two shapes of jug, rack plate and bowl. Backstamp: blue printed lion, crown and daisy mark with Royal Doulton England Rd No 408787 and Eglington Tournament printed inside the spout. The backstamp is generally considered to have in usein the early 1930s. A little minor discolouration underneath otherwise excellent condition.
