Coachman majolica 3/4 body toby jug produced in England circa 1920. 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. This is similar in design to the Coachman by Shorter and Son. Model number 11620 III is incised on the bottom of the jug.
