Olaf Jug

ImageImage 

Alfred Jingle Olaf Jug; D2973;  production era 1908 to 1931

The lid on this Olaf jug is really very slick, it has a counter balance built into it so that as the jug is tipped to pour the cover lifts so the contents can flow from the spout. I do not belive this came out of the factory with the lid, I beleive that it was fitted out side the factory, the metal work was very light weight and there was no impressed hall mark, which is normally the case with metal work applied in the factory, but it is still very sweet all the same.

Serjeannt Buzfuz Jug 7040 A; D2972; production era 1908 to 1931

22.5 cm (9") tall

 

Jug Shape 704A and 7040B is the same, it is the size that is different; this photo shows 7040A and B side by side. What I find really unusual about this photo is the Fat Boy example is a left handed example, where the Trotty Veck is a right handed example. I have a couple of colectors check their collections, and it would seem that a percentage of jugs where produced as right handers or left handers.
