TOBY jugs fall into three groups: Jugs with drab Whieldon-type coloured glazes in a limited palette, which are the most sought-after; jugs with underglaze decoration in the Prattware

As you wander through its corridors and public rooms you will find lovely collections of drinking glasses - mostly 18th century - along with a good selection of Prattware

, Spode, Poole, Mason's and Wedgwood.
Relief-moulded jugs, Staffordshire figures, Prattware
