Highwayman toby jug - Bairstow Manor Pottery circa 1980

Highwayman toby jug produced by Bairstow Manor Pottery of Hanley, England, circa 1980. A highwayman was a robber who stole from travelers. This type of thief usually travelled and robbed by horse as compared to a footpad who travelled and robbed on foot; mounted highwaymen were widely considered to be socially superior to footpads. Such criminals operated until the mid or late 19th century. This toby jug is a part of the Staffordshire Character Jugs Series.
