Squire toby jug medium - Shorter & Son circa 1950

Squire toby jug produced in a medium size by Shorter & Son of Stoke-on-Trent, England, circa 1950. In the Middle Ages, a squire was the shield- or armor-bearer of a knight. Use of the term evolved over time. Initially, a squire served as a knight's apprentice. Later, a village leader or a lord of the manor might come to be known as a "squire", and still later, the term was applied to members of the landed gentry.
