Coachman medium toby jug - Shorter & Son circa 1930

Coachman 3/4 body majolica toby jug produced by Shorter & Son of Stoke-on-Trent, England, circa 1930. A coachman is an employee who drives a coach or carriage, a horse-drawn vehicle designed for the conveyance of passengers. A coachman has also been called a coachee, coachy, whip, or hackman. The coachman's first concern is to remain in full control of the horses and another employee, traditionally a footman, would accompany the coach to handle any circumstances beyond the coachman's control.
