The Toby jug is often seen as a uniquely British form of ceramic, and a venerable one: its history dates back at least as far as the 1770's, and its ancestors' even further, to the creation of anthropomorphic jugs and bottles by medieval potters. Over the years the form of the Toby has developed from the basic shape of a rotund gentlemen seated with a jug of beer to encompass a huge variety of 'characters', and manufacturers both large and small in all parts of the world have produced the Toby. Toby and Character Jugs surveys the history of Toby and related jugs from their inception to the present day, and provides a wealth of useful hints and advice for all those thinking of collecting Toby jugs.
