Toad Money Box by Chelsea Pottery


Everyone knows of course that a toad-stone (which is to be found inside a toad’s head) will stop the pain from stings from wasps, bees, rats and so on (we at Cybergrot were unaware that rats sting – we learn something new every day).  And of course you will recall that these ‘toad stones’ were frequently mentioned in early literature including Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like it’ 

‘Sweet are the uses of adversity,

Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,

Wears yet a precious jewel in its head….’

The only precious jewel in this toad’s head will have to be put there by you – in the form of coin of the realm, for it is a ceramic money box created by the Chelsea Pottery we think some (but not many) years ago…..

And As We Like it we guess you will like it too……..

It is the size of a large toad

And has a small chip on its backside as you might expect on a site like ours….

A toady is a cringing parasite – nay an obsequious lickspittle….So don’t be one – haggle-ye-not and pay the full price….
