Unique & Minimal Design
Glug Glug Jugs were originally made by Thomas Forester & Son in Staffordshire in the late 1870’s.
However, most people will associate these jugs with Dartmouth Pottery, who originally produced a fish shaped water jug which they called ‘Gurgling Fish Jugs…..a novelty which always attracts attention’.
A special pair of jugs were made in 1958 for presentation to the Queen and Prince Philip on their visit to Britannia Naval College to present New Colours.
The Commanding Officer of the college commissioned the jugs which were 9” tall, glazed green and embossed with the Royal insignia and the date 28th July 1958. This gift undoubtedly helped the popularity of the jugs, and they became great collector’s items.
