Ironstone Banded Water Jug


A good early twentieth century ironstone water jug with incised banding. Early ironstone jugs are getting much harder to find these days, and this one is a good early example.

Plain, unadorned ironstone water jugs with clean-lines and simple forms were part of the everyday 19th and early 20th century kitchen. Their purity and functionality is as appealing today as it was then; and when used for either water, milk or flowers, or simply amassed as a decorative collection, they make an arresting addition to the modern home.
