Fowler Ware ‘Utility’ jug
made in Australia 1940s
I’ve featured a lot of Fowler Ware pudding bowls and jugs on this blog: the 40s colours and shapes are so fabulous. This jug is stoneware, and from the Fowler Ware ‘Utility’ range – perhaps off-white wasn’t as glamorous as the coloured pieces -and could be used every day.
Whatever, the beauty of the off-white stoneware is that any fruit/food/kitchen implement stored in them looks fantastic. Collecting in a single colour is quite dramatic, and these pieces look fantastic in a white or neutral-toned contemporary kitchen. I was inspired by a friend who has about 15 off-white bowls sitting on the top of her kitchen cupboards- in that space below the ceiling.
And the beauty of the jug- it doubles as a vase! Win-win-win!
I have matching Utility stoneware pudding bowls for sale elsewhere on the blog. Start collecting today!
The Utility jug is back stamped, and in excellent vintage condition-for sale: $AU35
