Royal Doulton Sancho Panca Large D6456
Royal Doulton Character Jug (Mug), Sancho Panca D6456 (black hat with a white feather, black coat with a white collar). Great donkey or mules head as handle. Designed by Geoff Blower. From Series of Characters from Literature, issued 1957 - 1983 and marked 1956.
This mug measures 7 1/4 inches high, 8 inches wide and 6 inches deep and weighs 1 pound 7 ounces. This is larger than some other 6 inch sizes I have seen.
The story goes that this amiable peasant was employed as the squire to Don Quixote in Cervantes's 17th-century novel. Accompanying Quixote on many adventures, his down-to-earth common sense acted as a foil to his master's romantic musing.
