"When the Devil was sick the Saint would be
When the Devil got well Devil a Saint was he"
An extremely rare and beautiful example of a Royal Doulton character jug / toby mug Mephistopheles - The Devil. Designed by Charles Noke and Harry Fenton and hand-painted in England. It numbers D5757 and was issued between 1937-1948. This very rare and highly sought after jug was one of the very few produced during WWII, at a time when the production of decorated China for the UK market was prohibited due to wartime restrictions.
