British vodka figural Russian man ceramic bottle Royal Norfolk vintage 1960s


An empty, vintage, figural ceramic vodka bottle, made by Royal Norfolk, Staffordshire, England, probably in the 1960s, and originally used to hold British vodka.
The bottle is shaped like a Russian man, with fur hat and full black beard. He has a slightly dazed, cross-eyed, expression, which may be accounted for by the fact that he appears to be drinking vodka from a half-pint tankard rather than in the more usual glass...
There is a small white felt pad stuck to his chest - I doubt that it is original, as it does not look as if it has been there for the last half-century, but I have not attempted to remove it.
 
Size:
This bottle is eight-and-a-half inches tall (22 cm)
It weighs 280g

Condition:

Fairly good used condition, but not perfect.

There are no chips or cracks, but there is the usual crazed appearance of Staffordshire pottery, and a few small surface marks.

A few flakes of paint are missing, mainly on his hat and mug.

(The mark just above his boot appears to be a spot of paint or similar - it is not a chip.)

Please see the photographs to get a clear idea of the condition of this item.
