F�lix Mayol toby jug - Vierzon circa 1910

Felix Mayol majolica toby jug produced by Vierzon of Vierzon, France, circa 1910. Felix Mayol (1872-1941) was a French singer and entertainer. In 1895 he went to Paris and the Montparnasse Quarter where he began a career in entertainment that spanned more than forty years. He adopted a camp and effeminate manner on stage as part of his theatrical persona. He sang the famous song "Viens poupoule, viens poupoule, viens...", and performed many songs by Theodore Botrel. In this toby jug he is dressed as a circus clown with a trapeze as the handle of the jug. This jug was designed by F. Perrot.
