English Victorian Staffordshire Glazed Pottery Character Face Jug

DETAILS
An antique, 19th century character jug modelled as a smiling, rosy cheeked face of a man glazed in white with a pink hat and collar.
Originally designed in the potteries of Staffordshire England in the 1760s, Toby Jugs (Fillpots or Philpots) are modelled as seated or standing figures, typically jovial and intoxicated holding a beer, with a tricorn hat forming the spout and a handle on the back. These jugs also take the form of popular historical or fictional characters. Figural jugs modelled with only the head and shoulders are referred to as Character or Face Jugs.
