Hi guys and gals. Can anybody shed any light on this 'Jug'?
« on: September 24, 2006, 10:19:06 AM »
I've had this for a few years now and I've not seen another one like it.

It has good age wear to the base and has a 60's feel to it.  I'd say Scandinavian??

Size wise it's approx 8.5" tall and 7" across.

It would be lovely to know more about it and I'd appreciate any help in ID'ing it.

Jay.

Very interesting. I've never seen anything like it. Looks almost unfinished.

Hi again!!

I think I know what you mean.   I've always thought, from a practical p.o.v, that it should have an handle to help with pouring.  Though, I do think it looks better without!!  
More style than function, this one!!

Or maybe it is just 'unfinished' after all!!  :? lol  who knows!!

may I guess it is part of a (scandi?) cruet set, sitting in a chrome holder?

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Hi Pamela.  

You guess away.  It's good of you to try and help.  Thank you  :wink:

As for it being part of a cruet set, I think it would be too big for that.  Most cruet sets I've seen are a lot smaller.  This jug/vase/whatever is approx 220mm x 190mm.

Mind you saying that, if it is part of a cruet set, I'd love to see the giant salt and pepper pots that go with it!!   :lol:

I'll take a stab at this one. :wink:   It looks like an apple with a piece sliced off.  Perhaps it is a fruit bowl ..... :?:

Hi Lily.

Y' know what, that's a pretty good stab!!  As daft as it sounds, it never occured to me that it might be a fruit bowl!!

One of the things that attracted it to me when I first saw it was the apple shape, when you look at it straight on.  But, when you look at it sideways, the 'lip' bit looked like it was there for pouring liquids.  It looked like a jug, all be it a very stylised jug, and the 'jug' thing got stuck in my head!!

But yeah, it could be a fruit bowl.  It would explain why it's the worst 'jug' in the world to pour from from!!   :wink:  lol.

It reminds me of an ice bucket style made by Morgantown Glass (I know this isn't Morgantown).  Could the "pouring lip" be a place to hang the ice tongs?

Hi

Sadly, it's not.   I've tried with my pair of ice tongs and they just kept falling off.   Shame that, it was a good idea.   :wink:

It's the 'belly' of the bowl and the edge of the pouring lip protruding out more or less the same distance that stops it.  We'd be hard pressed to get anything to hang from there.   :(

By the way, is your real name Connie?
