This ninth edition lists all the important information a collector needs to keep abreast of the market: new issues, new discontinuation dates, new values, and a new 32-page colour section. Key features include: a photograph of each jug, some in colour; each entry lists the jug name, number, series, designer, size, handle design, variations and colourways, backstamps, dates of issue and discontinuation; gives current values for the UK, US and Canadian markets. All values have been reviewed and updated for this latest edition. Prices have firmed slightly over the last couple of years, with some of the scarce jugs inching towards new highs. Information on the Royal Doulton Collectors Club, Doulton dealers, auctions and fairs has been provided for collectors.
