public_access_description
This dish or ashtray is decorated with an image of Codlin and Short, the travelling Punch & Judy proprietors from Charles Dickens' The Old Curiosity Shop, meeting in a street outside an inn with the sign 'Worthington', the beer manufacturers. This was part of a series of ceramic wares advertising Worthington's produced in the 1930s and manufactured in Staffordshire by Newhall of Hanley. Short is holding a figure of Mr. Punch while Codlin carries the pan pipes that he plays in the book. Charles Dickens was fond of Punch and Judy. Today Punch and Judy shows are a feature of British seaside entertainment whose history in Great Britain stretches back to the puppet show that Samuel Pepys first noted seeing in Covent Garden on 9 May 1662 performed by the Italian puppeteer Signor Bologna.
