Parakeet water pitcher toby jug
in a red colorway produced by Royal Tettau Porcelain Factory of Bavaria, Germany, circa 1920 using its Royal Bayreuth tradename. A parakeet is any one of many small to medium-sized species of parrot that generally has long tail feathers. Parakeets comprise about 115 species of birds that are seed-eating parrots of small size, slender build, and long, tapering tails. The Australian budgerigar, also known as "budgie", is probably the most common parakeet. It was first described by zoologists in 1891 and is the most popular species of parakeet kept as a pet in North America and Europe. The parakeet's wings fold back to form the handle of the jug. This is the largest of three known sizes of Parakeet jugs with the milk pitcher standing 4 1/2" tall and the creamer 3 3/4" tall.
