Best Answer

Toby mugs are ceramic mugs sold in Britain. The mugs have caricatures on them usually old sailors. They are quite popular in the collecting trade. One of the most famous is the Toby Jug seen over the fireplace on the movie 'Twelve O'Clock High' made in the late 40's.

How can you find out what the markings on the bottom of a Toby mug mean?

First take a good digital picture of the markings on the bottom and write down anything you can not capture. Ebay is a great way to find knowledgeable people on Toby mugs and shoot it off to them to see if they can direct you to the right answer for age of mug and worth. Besides the marking, if there is an artist's signature on the bottom, it may help date the mug. Royal Doulton was known for the true Toby Mug.
