Three Sociable Frogs

"Three Sociable Frogs" Vintage Mousepad

Cute vintage image of three gentleman frogs meeting in the street. The frog on the left seems to have forgotten his pants but he carries a cane, wears a top hat and is smoking a cigar. The middle one is very smartly dressed and also very polite in doffing his hat to his friend. Third frog seems maybe a little shy in his straw boater hat.
