This Grindley jug is the exact match for a breakfast set¬†that I sold a while back, only much larger! In fact it’s quite hard to come across vintage jugs this big – they’re normally about the size of a milk jug, or otherwise made of glass. I’m not sure what it’s meant to be used for – because it looks like an oversized milk jug it’s a bit confusing, but I suppose just because it’s ceramic doesn’t mean that you can’t use it as a water or a juice jug. You could also use it for custard or gravy (if you’re having a seriously large dinner party!), or as a milk jug if you’re hosting the mother of all tea parties!

Dimensions: 14cm tall x 13cm in diameter

Price: R130
