Flared Golden Amber Can (Mug) - ID = Whitefriars 9036
« on: August 31, 2010, 02:53:37 AM »

Click image for GlassGallery enlargement / view of base

H. 5" 12.8cm, rim d. 4¼" 10.7cm, cap. ½ litre 17½ fl.oz 7/8 pint.

Possibly a mistake by yours truly.   It looks English to me, and that flat-topped handle is almost identical to that on a 1930s Tudor jug I have.   However, its capacity is exactly ½ litre — not a British size.   I suppose in future I shall have to take a bucket of water and a measuring jug with me when I go out buying!  :spls:  ;D

Anyway, enlightenment sought please.

A link to the page in the 1957 catalogue if it helps.

jp & Chris — Grateful thanks for your speedy replies, and for the good news.   I don't try to get it wrong, it just comes naturally.   At least not this time.   I'm sure I looked at that page (Evans p.318), jp, but possibly the engraved initials shown put me off.   I wonder if I will ever find one with an engraved Spitfire — that's something so tempting I might keep it for a while.   I was looking at engraved Spitfires only a few weeks ago;  those by Whistler in Moreton Church.   The price in that catalogue page is amazing.    It works out at 5/6 per mug, and that's wholesale, so it must have been at least 7/11 retail.   That was a lot of money in 1940.

Chris — It's a much better likeness than the 1940 drawing.   I've taken the opportunity for a browse around the WFdotcom catalogues.   9036 was launched in the 1938 catalogue and appears regularly up to 1957.   Apparently it was designed by William Wilson.

Thanks again to both of you,
