EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHARACTER JUG.
Poachers are trespassers on private property in quest of fish or game. Poachers have been around for thousands of years and even in spite of heavy fines and penalties are still about today. This character jug depicted by Royal Doulton looks astute but harmless and friendly considering his crimes. Probably by day he follows some quite ordinary and respected calling and only undercover in secret he becomes the poacher. Salmon and trout are amoung his most sort after prizes and tickling trout or lifting them under the gills when theyre breeding in the off seasons is probably his specialty and most sinister behaviour.
