Victorian Toby Jugs.

We use the title "Victorian Toby jugs" to describe a style of jug made in the golden age of the Staffordshire portrait figure c1840-1900. A period where rich under-glaze cobalt blue and soft enamel colours were used with a simpler potting technique. Toby jugs continued to be produced in this manner until the 1960s and are still produced today in numerous modern glaze finishes. Most Victorian toby jugs are relatively inexpensive and will be a good introduction into collecting early examples. They are decorative with some representing dignitaries of their day or simply copied from early 1800s favourites. Good antique fairs are worth visiting where meeting other enthusiasts will help with the identification of the genuine from the modern, it will also put you on the road to understanding glazes and potting techniques.
