Hunting jug

Hunting jug

Mid-Victorian salt-glazed spring-moulded hunting jug, with the mouldings depicting Toby Belcher (holding a frothing jug and glass, with pipe on the table), a second man sitting on a barrel, head in hand (with a frothing jug and pipe on table), an oak tree, a windmill, a vine with grapes at the base of the handle, and around the bottom of the scene a male rider blowing a horn and pursuing 4 (or possibly 5) pairs of hounds. There is a hole in this part of the jug, and the handle is missing. The jug was decades old when discarded.
