The heavy-set figure is embellished with chased decoration realistically modelled in the form of 18th century attire, incorporating a waistcoat and long outer-coat.
This antique Toby Jug is further ornamented with a smoking pipe and drinking vessel in either hand.
The shape of the flared upper portion of the jug pertains to a tricorn hat and incorporates a pouring spout to the anterior edge.

The character surmounts a domed base encircled with a trellis of lozenge designs, replicating the details of tiles.
