This vintage polka dot milk jug is a recent addition to our webshop.
Produced by Price Bros, it really is a fabulous bit of 1950s pottery… and just has to beat using a plastic milk carton!
It got us thinking about other milky marvels we could rustle up.
Turns out we had quite a few pieces to share – from storage vessels like old bottles & crates to advertising items such as this teatowel.
BBC Homes & Antiques Magazine ran a big feature on milk-related collectables this month… referred to as dairyana these days.
Dairyana incorporates butter & cheese items too – so there are various utensils, stools, buckets, bowls, churns and moulds to consider.
Lots of lovely treen, enamel, metalware and pottery.
Items have many practical uses which add to the appeal of collecting.
We like few pieces dotted around the kitchen. It adds a bit of vintage character & warmth. Some items we use as originally intended such as jugs – others can be repurposed like vintage milk bottles for displaying fresh cut flowers.
So, raise a glass to dairyana… a milk glass of course!
