I paid a king’s ransom for these over-sized Johnson Bros jugs, but being much bigger than your standard milk jug, they’re quite unusual – and super-attractive! I love the blue glaze, and those up-turned spouts and voluptuous bodies are just delightful! Plus they seem to be in great condition, with only very minor signs of wear. Going on their sizes I’d say that they were were probably intended for custard or gravy – they just seem too large for milk, but I suppose if you’re hosting a serious tea party they could also come in handy!
Dimensions: Large jug – 17cm tall x 12cm wide x 19cm ‘long’ (handle to spout); Medium jug – 15cm tall x 11cm wide x 17cm ‘long’ (handle to spout)
Price: Large jug – R150; Medium jug – R120
