From time to time I will post interesting items that I see on eBay that would be of interest to a LVC fan. These are not endorsements of the sellers, just merely my observations of interesting or rare items.
LEE VAN CLEEF 'PROTOTYPE' LIMITED EDITION TOBY JUG THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY THIS WILL BE AN EDITION SIZE OF 15 ONLY WORLDWIDE
This privately commissioned Toby Jug is yet another outstanding masterpiece, by the famous artist Ray Noble, and produced by the Toby/Character jug specialist Bairstow Manor Pottery, of Staffordshire England.
This Jug stands 6 inches tall, hand crafted, and hand painted by Dan Smith (ex Royal Doulton). Who's initials can be found on the base, net to the backstamp. Each Jug will carry its own identification number which makes up part of the back stamp.With a limited edition only 15 worldwide, this must be amongst the smallest, if not the smallest limited edition ever made.
Truly a magnificent masterpiece, and a very desirable must have item among the Toby/character jug or Cowboy/western collectors.
