A 1940s Grindley's creamware water jug - stamped to the underside "Banquet Ware Grindley England".
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.
Year of manufacture: c.1940
