Although the first Toby jug was made in the 18th century of a seated man, their origins go back two hundred years to the German jugs in the shape of bears and then the later Staffordshire owl jugs. There is no agreement about how they received their name. These were followed by figures of a drunken parson, a convict, a miner with a blackened face and other figures. This Toby jug is made from earthenware clay in Vermont and features a rounded-bellied man with a beard made of leaves. He holds up to 1qt. of your choice of beverage.
