Vic in a Barrel toby jug in an artist's proof trial colorway produced by Peggy Davies Ceramics for Kevin Francis Ceramics of Stoke-on-Trent, England, in a 2000 limited edition of 200 as a Special Release for the Kevin Francis Guild Open Day. Victor Hugo Schuler (1918-200x) had a lifelong interest in British history and antiques. His 40-year obsession however was collecting Toby jugs. He had a stall on Saturdays at the Portobello Road Market in London and was the recognized world expert on antique Toby jugs, writing two books on the topic. Note Vic's signature on the bottom of the jug.
