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series ware in 1902, registered the design in 1904, increased the range in 1908 and are believed to have finally withdrawn it in 1928.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: Royal Doulton England Rd No 408787 and in script D1425 and Eglinton Tournament printed inside the spout.
It has a tiny nick to the foot and a little very minor discolouration inside to the base otherwise excellent condition.
