(2) little green Orzel jug(s)

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Mon 21 Jul - 14:50

I picked this little jug up at the antique shop in Westport, the only thing I bought in my brief trip to the South Island.

I am guessing it is Orzel.


I have photographed it here with my Orzel salt and pepper.
They are the same height, about 90mm.

The glaze looks a bit different but the white seen at top of condiments can be seen inside the jug.

My larger Orzel jug is in Thelma's Orzel topic here:

I have not photographed all three shapes together because the other jug has been boxed for storage. I may be able to dig it out in the next few days.

I have been pondering this wee jug for a couple of weeks - I am leaning towards it being Orzel as well.
But I am not confident enough to want it in gallery at this point. Esp since I am not familiar with the shape.
It has a very similar glaze to yours, Jeremy. Do you - or anyone else - have any thoughts?

That is totally Orzel glaze, Val.

See Thelma's Orzel topic linked in my previous post (above) for the glaze.
My little jug above is less like Thelma's casseroles and so on than your one.

Also, I think you will find the shape in the gallery, if this is a creamer/milk jug.
