Six Jolly Fellowship Porters
By: Department 56 ®
This pub displays a very unique architecture; a thorough viewing from all sides is necessary to appreciate the many details. There are two entrances, one with a bell; stone work and half-timbered construction; interesting doorways; and mismatched rooflines. The upper story has diamond-mullioned windows. One sign declares “Best Ales and Porters”. Fence post finials and a bit of greenery in the window box complete the unique features. The name is taken from Our Mutual Friend, the last novel completed by Charles Dickens, and is a fictional pub based on those he frequented and on which real pubs are named today. Fellowship porters were laborers who transported goods by carrying them – fish, fruit, salt, coal. Includes the hanging sign, The Six Jolly Fellowship Porters.
