    Marvelous Teddy Roosevelt Ceramic Toby Mug This charming mug has lon been considered one of the very best TR 3-D items! Wonderful 3-D image in safari attire. As if he weren't instantly recognizable, the belt buckle is marked "T.R." Perhaps the neatest feature of this mug is the handle, made in the form of an elephants head and trunk. Marked on the bottom as being the design of noted illustrator Edward Penfield with the imprint of " The Toby Potteries New York." Pristine condition, height 7.75". We know of at least several examples which changed hands in the mid-1990s at around $2500. This is genuinely a scarce item which many people, including toby mug collectors, covet
