Pelican toby jug - Fitz and Floyd 1986

Pelican toby jug produced in Japan by Fitz and Floyd of Medford, Oregon, in 1986. Pelicans are a genus of large water birds that make up the family Pelecanidae. They are characterized by a long beak and a large throat pouch used for catching prey and draining water from the scooped-up contents before swallowing. They have predominantly pale plumage. The bills, pouches, and bare facial skin of all pelicans become brightly colored before the breeding season. The eight living pelican species have a patchy global distribution, ranging latitudinally from the tropics to the temperate zone. This pelican has a freshly caught fish in its mouth. Reeds and cattails form the handle of the jug.
