Esmeralda character jug - Applause circa 2000

Esmeralda character jug produced in Indonesia for Applause of Woodland Hills, California, circa 2000. Esmeralda, born Agnès, is a fictional character in Victor Hugo's 1831 novel "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame". She is a French Roma girl and near the end of the book, it is revealed that her biological mother was a French woman. She constantly attracts men with her seductive dances, and is rarely seen without her clever goat Djali. She is around 16 years old and has a kind and generous heart. Esmeralda is the deuteragonist of Disney's 1996 animated feature film "The Hunchback of Notre Dame". She is a young Romani woman who dwells within the streets of Paris. Esmeralda is an outspoken humanitarian, which drives her to protect the deformed bell-ringer, Quasimodo, from his oppressors—namely Claude Frollo. This act of mercy, coupled with her beauty and cultural background, makes Esmeralda the main target of Frollo's wrath.
