ARTONE MINIATURE TOBY JUGS 8 WIDECOMBE FAIR TOM COBLEY

size 1 shipping box

Vintage miniature toby jugs feature the characters from the Widecombe Fair song about Uncle Tom Cobley and his pals. Eight tiny (about 1 3/4 inches tall) jugs - all in very good condition. No cracks, chips or crazing. The back of each handpainted jug has the name of a character in the song.

The phrase Uncle Tom Cobley and all is used in British English as a humorous or whimsical way of saying et al , often to express exasperation at the large number of people in a list. The phrase comes from a Devon folk song Widecombe Fair, collected by Sabine Baring-Gould. Its chorus ends with a long list of people: For I want for to go to Widecombe Fair, With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney, Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke, Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all. The surname is spelt as Cobleigh in some references.
