This is my perfect example of a Toby jug; Made by Wood and Sons, the name was used in production from 1907-1910 from what I've read on it. He is based on Toby Philpot, the original inspiration for Toby jugs. Ralph Wood was apparently the first person to start making the 'Toby' jugs in the 18th century. I've seen very similar molds in England mostly (ebay and collectors sites) going anywhere from 50$ to 100$; seems like there more collectible in North America. Although I plan on keeping mine for a long time!!
