Owl toby jug - Shaw and Copestake circa 1940

Owl toby jug produced by Shaw and Copestake of Longton, England, circa 1940 using its Falcon Ware tradename. Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes over 200 species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight.
Owls hunt mostly small mammals, insects, and other birds, although a few species specialize in hunting fish. They are found in all regions of the Earth except the polar ice caps and some remote islands. A group of owls is called a "parliament". A tree branch with flower forms the handle of the jug.
