Theodore Roosevelt 3/4 body toby jug produced by Lenox China of Lawrenceville, New Jersey, circa 1915. Theodore Roosevelt Jr. (1858 - 1919), often referred to as Teddy or by his initials T. R., was an American politician, statesman, soldier, conservationist, naturalist, historian, and writer who served as the 26th president of the United States from 1901 to 1909. He previously served as the 25th vice president under President William McKinley from March to September 1901. Assuming the presidency after McKinley's assassination, Roosevelt emerged as a leader of the Republican Party and became a driving force for anti-trust and Progressive policies. This rare toby jug was made by Lenox to commemorate a Teddy Roosevelt African safari in 1909 and 1910. The design was done by American illustrator, Edward Penfield, in 1909. In addition to the trademark Roosevelt grin, the character carries an elephant gun and a book. The jug is marked on bottom "Lenox/Patent Applied For/Design Of Edward Penfield/The Toby Potteries New York." Beautifully designed with smiling Teddy and prominent mustache, teeth, glasses wearing safari uniform with hat and scarf. He holds a rifle in one hand and book marked "Africa" in other. His belt buckle reads "T.R." The handle is a large elephant head with its trunk attached to Teddy's jacket and its ears are draped over Teddy's shoulders.
