Hunting Frog toby jug - Orchies circa 1905

Hunting Frog majolica toby jug produced by Orchies of France circa 1905. With his pistol in this right hand, a game bag on his right hip, and pouch of gun powder on his left hip, this successful Hunting Frog is returning home with a dead snake in slung over his left shoulder and forming the handle of the jug. The bag of gun powder has "Poudre" incised on it. Orchies model numbers are a combination of letters and numbers. The letters are an abbreviation for the name of the jug and the number is the size of the jug. This jug is known in two sizes with this one being the larger.
