Huntsman character jug produced by Peggy Davies Ceramics of Stoke-on-Trent, England, in a 1997 limited edition for Tetley's to celebrate 175 years of brewing excellence. Traditionally in England, the Huntsman was the person whose responsibility it was to manage an organized hunt, such as a foxhunt, and possibly look after the hounds as well. He loved the Gallop, knows his pack by name and smacks his top boots with his crop to emphasize his charge. Soon, anyone participating on a hunt became referred to as a huntsman. Today the name simply refers to one who hunts or who practices hunting. After generations of English huntsman, fox hunting has recently been outlawed in the United Kingdom. This huntsman is holding a full glass of Tetley's ale in his right hand with "Tetley's Ales" emblazoned on his jacket. A riding crop forms the handle of the jug.
