1920s Milk Jug


A good early twentieth century ironstone milk jug with "MILK" underglaze transfer typography. Early ironstone jugs with lettering are getting much harder to find these days, and this one is in excellent condition.

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.
