i bought this funny claret jug some weeks ago in new york - i know my question is a little strange - i hope the admin wont move this question - but the fact that there are so many silver specialists lets me hope to find out .. what fable or tale can this be- its a jug made by william leuchars - london 1885 - glass probably by W. Fritsche -working for Thomas Webb - the pattern on the glass is out of the Pattern book for glass engravers by Joseph Keller - but this claret jug is so unusual that i thought i must be a story which is told here - but which - if there is anybody who could help - it would be great ! many thx and greetings from austria , tom
What an unusual claret jug. I don't know of any English fable or myth with a frog and dragon. They are sometimes connected in Chinese culture. There are primitive earthquake detectors with dragons dropping balls into frogs' mouths.
