Drostdy Lion Beers jug

This isn’t the most exciting water jug I’ve ever come across, but I liked it’s local relevance. Not only was it made by Drostdy (Grahamstown Potteries), but it’s a bit of advertising paraphernalia for Lion Beers, which I can only assume is the same brand as Lion Lager. Lion Lager was around for over 100 years before it disappeared off SA shelves, and was a staple at family braais when I grew up. So even though it’s a bit plain (and a bit worn – see pics under ‘more’), I think it’s worth the money just for the nostalgia factor!

Dimensions: 15cm tall x 12cm in diameter (at its widest)

Price: R110
