Man in Cape majolica toby jug - Mafra circa 1885

Man in Cape majolica toby jug produced by Mafra in Portugal circa 1885. With his left hand in his vest and right hand in his trousers pocket, this man's cape is flowing around him as he walks through town on a brisk fall evening. The bust of a woman, perhaps his wife, forms the handle of the jug, similar to a caryatid handle on English toby jugs.
