    Royal Doulton Character mug, Toby Philpots (green hat; brown coat; blue scarf with white spots). Designed by Charles Noke, issued 1939 – 1969. 

    A “thirsty old soul” in an 18th century drinking song, Toby is thought by some to be the source of the traditional British Toby jug, in which a character sits astride a barrel of ale. Popular opinion suggests his name is a derivation of the French top’e, to toast.
