Buff coloured Yorkshire type Toby Jug. Circa 1815EBay 11.2.13
A very crude Hearty Good Fellow toby jug (left) has just been sold on EBay for approx. £750-00. This is surprising as buff coloured wares usually make a fraction of the price than those of good traditional colour. The circular decorative patches are similar to that found on buff coloured cow groups, a good reference point when identifying the potters of this jug.
Result 750 GBP
