Innkeeper toby jug - Wekma Pottery circa 1960

Innkeeper toby jug produced by Wekma Pottery of Gzhel, Russia, circa 1960. 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. With a broom at his right side and keys hanging from his apron, this innkeeper is holding a full mug of ale in his right hand, ready to offer the drink to the next patron who comes through the door. The innkeeper's left arm forms the handle of the jug.
