ExpertAppraiser :

"The Poacher" Table Lighter #D6464 Royal Doulton Toby Jug sells at the retail level for $100 to $125 but at auction it can bring much less.

ExpertAppraiser :

For example, at a June 12, 2013 auction one in mint condition sold at the $37 level.

ExpertAppraiser :

Another - with condition problems- brought $30 at a recent eBay auction.

ExpertAppraiser :

As such, a retail value of yours, minus the lighter, would be around $30 to $40.
