Pelican toby jug water - Royal Bayreuth circa 1920

Pelican water pitcher toby jug produced by Royal Tettau Porcelain Factory of Bavaria, Germany, circa 1920 using its Royal Bayreuth tradename. 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 is the largest of three known sizes of Pelican jugs with the milk pitcher standing 4 3/4" tall and the creamer 3 3/4" tall.
