Beswick Beatrix Potter Squirrel Nutkin

and the owl Old Mr Brown jug



This rare 'Old Mr Brown' vintage porcelain character jug is from renowned British Pottery, Beswick. Beswick was founded in 1892 and is primarily known for producing high quality porcelain animal figurines, including those characters introduced by author Beatrix Potter. Beswick was sold to Royal Doulton in 1969, and Doulton ceased using the Beswick backstamp in 1989. This piece is based on Potter's story, "The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin".

Beatrix Potter's popular children's story features primary characters Squirrel Nutkin and the owl Old Mr Brown, and was published in 1903. The story tells the tale of how Squirrel Nutkin torments Old Mr Brown with silly riddles while his industrious squirrel friends gather nuts on Owl Island. Squirrel Nutkin pushes his luck a little too far and narrowly escapes Old Mr Brown's lair.

This appealing porcelain character jug is highly detailed and features Old Mr Brown's upper torso and head. The handle of the jug is Squirrel Nutlkin himself, who is clinging to Old Mr Brown and appears to be whispering in his ear. Squirrel Nutkin's brownish-red body contrasts nicely with the owl's grey and tan plumage - very cute!

This hard to find Squirrel Nutkin Beswick character jug was only produced for a short time and is in excellent condition. The piece stands 2.5" tall and measures 2.5" deep and 3.75" across at its widest point. The jug is free of chips, cracks, crazing and repairs and is marked with the BP4 brown backstamp on its glazed foot. The backstamp features the Beswick script signature and reads "John Beswick" "ENGLAND -BEATRIX POTTER - "Old Mr. Brown" - © 1987 Frederick Warne & Co. - Licensed by Copyrights".

Doulton's Beatrix Potter range, particularly pieces with the Beswick mark, are highly collectible and much sought after on the secondary market. This lovely character jug is an excellent example and would make a wonderful addition to other Beswick pieces, or could serve as a fantastic baby gift. Very special and destined to be a treasured part of anyone's collection.
