Blue jug

It is a truth universally acknowledged that I am not a great flower arranger, but just look at the rich pickings from the garden in November! And as for the jug…well, it’s red earthenware (as usual) and in my favourite blue glaze.

The tricky thing about jugs is to make them so they don’t drip when they pour. I can remember some years ago when my college ordered and bought dozens of small milk jugs – stainless steel and totally utilitarian – and they dripped. Every single one of them. How can anyone sign off on a mass production of a jug that drips?

This one is drip free.

Height 10 cm, across 11 cm. SOLD
