Innkeeper toby jug produced by Bairstow Manor Pottery of Hanley, England, circa 1980. An innkeeper is someone who owns or manages an inn. When you arrive at an inn, the innkeeper might be the person who checks you in and gives you a key to your room. The earliest innkeepers ran inns in Europe during medieval times. These inns provided lodging, food, and a place for travelers to leave their horses, and an innkeeper managed all of these details. This toby jug is a part of the Staffordshire Character Jugs Series.
