Owl toby jug - Shorter & Son circa 1940

Owl toby jug produced by Shorter & Son of Stoke-on-Trent, England, circa 1940. 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 forms the handle of the jug.
