Monkey toby jug - Poet-Laval circa 1920

Monkey majolica toby jug produced by Poet-Laval of France circa 1920. The inquisitive monkey is sitting in his cage at the zoo watching the crowds of people walk by. He is especially intrigued by the smaller sized humans who seem most excited to see him. The monkey's tail curls up to form the handle of the jug. Photo courtesy of www.barbotine-belge.com.
