Pro Tip: A character jug draws its name from "caricature" which is generally the head or face of the person only.

Pro Tip: A toby jug generally depicts a "full body" of the person depicted thereon, quite often with ale, and the design of them originates from the 18th century (1700's). To see our large range of Royal Doulton toby jugs click here
