VICTORIAN POTTERY TOBY JUG WITH HAT. Design Registration 1890
This Jolly Victorian Toby Jug bears the Design Registration Number 153475 giving us a date of 1890.
Amazingly, he still has his hat which, but for an old, short hairline to the base rim (not seen when in place) and a small glaze chip to the back, is in one piece with no restoration.
The Jug has some minor glaze nicks to the footrim and some paint loss to the hair. Likewise, there is no restoration.
A Jolly Toby Jug which displays beautifully.
Height: 10.5 inches (27 cm)
