Welcome to Nest Egg Antiques

NestEgg Antiques specialises in early English pottery 1740-1840 including 18th century Toby Jugs, Saltglaze Stoneware, Delft, Creamware, Pearlware and Staffordshire figures but also offer later pottery such as Castle Hedingham and Compton as well as many other antiques.

We are the leading provider of early English Toby Jugs and normally stock in excess of 150 including many rare examples. We are always pleased to hear from collectors wanting to discuss a particular Toby Jug or to add to their collection. In February 2024 Bob Moores was appointed as an advisor to the V&A for Toby jugs under their superfan advisor programme.

Demand for early English Toby jugs is high and we are always eager to buy.  If you sell direct to a reputable dealer you will avoid significant auction fees and benefit from immediate payment. Whether you are considering selling a single Toby jug or a collection we will offer good and fair advice and the very best prices. If you do decide to sell then we will be happy to arrange collection.
