You’ve all been to auctions, antique malls and flea markets and you have all seen the characters associated with these. There is Robin Hood, Don Quixote as well as Anne Boleyn and Admiral Nelson. Startlingly lifelike are Toby Jugs made by the Royal Doulton pottery and porcelain factory in England.
These great collectible Toby Jugs were in fact the brainchild of Charles J. Nokes who thought it would be fun to generate smiles on the weary faces of travelers stopping in at the inns and taverns during The Great Depression. Some of these great Toby Jugs, who were named after Toby Fillpot, of drinking song fame, are not only unusual but very pricey to collect. Some of the more expensive are the smaller, 1.5” salesman samples that were discontinued in 1960.
