Penguin majolica toby jug produced by Desvres circa 1910 model 356. Penguins are a group of aquatic flightless birds from the order Sphenisciformes. They live almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere. Highly adapted for life in the ocean water, penguins have counter shaded dark and white plumage and flippers for swimming. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid and other forms of sea life which they catch with their bills and swallow whole while swimming. A penguin has a spiny tongue and powerful jaws to grip slippery prey. They spend about half of their lives on land and the other half in the sea.. This is a rare jug. There are two known colorways of the Penguin. The colorway shown here is courtesy of Marysse Bottero.
