The flow blue or blue and white jugs were the last phase of the Toby Jugs from the factory all known stock were painted in 1985 the then and current popular blue finish.

The Shakespeare series of 8 jugs was introduced in 1950 and continued until 1985 expanding to a total of 15 designs. Some designs proved to be less popular so they were phased out. Dating these toby jugs or mugs becomes easier when referencing “Toby & Character Jugs of the 20th Century and their Makers” by David C. Fastenau & Stephen M. Mullins
On page 52 gives a list of production dates for each jug.
The painters (Mary Harper the principle face painter) spent 50% of their time hand painting the expressive faces of these Toby jugs.
