Vintage enamel jug used in the kitchens and pantries of European households.  These jugs would have been used to store and dispense wet and dry staples.  Enamel canisters became an Edwardian alternative to the stoneware jar. Apart from being lighter to carry, they were far more likely to survive the rigours of a busy kitchen as they didn’t shatter on a flagstone floor.

Enamel jugs, canisters, teapots, pans etc were originally produced in the United Kingdom with Poland taking over most of the production in the 1960s. With cream and white being the usual colours for British enamel, the arrival of the vibrant colours from Poland in the sixties was hard to resist.

These jugs are watertight so can be used as for vases, pot plant watering jugs as well as ornaments.  They are 400mm high, 200mm dia at the top and 150mm dia at the bottom.

Being authentic vintage and as we have multiple of this product there may be slight variations from the picture shown.
