Elf toby jug - Fancies Fayre Pottery circa 1950

Elf toby jug produced by Fancies Fayre Pottery of Shelton, England, circa 1950. An elf is a type of humanoid supernatural being in Germanic mythology and folklore. In medieval Germanic-speaking cultures, elves generally seem to have been thought of as beings with magical powers and supernatural beauty, ambivalent towards everyday people and capable of either helping or hindering them. However, the details of these beliefs have varied considerably over time. A toadstool forms the handle of the jug.
