4 1/2 Pint Water Jug
A large 1920s ironstone water jug with raised banding stamped "Lord Nelson Pottery England" to the underside of the base.
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.
