"Beatty" Toby Jug
"Beatty" Toby Jug

This First World War Toby jug depicts British Admiral Sir David Beatty, a prominent naval commander before, during, and after the war.

One of a series of such jugs by British political cartoonist Francis Carruthers Gould featuring Allied military leaders and politicians, this example shows Beatty, in uniform, holding a shell marked "Dread/nought" - a reference to the type of battleship that formed the centrepiece of Britain's naval might during the war. Its handle takes the shape of a naval gun, while a stylized submarine decorates one side of the base.
