Barrel Water Jug
A stunning, large 1920s barrel-shaped creamware water jug with raised banding and strap handle.
Plain, unadorned 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.
