Beach Oil Jugs Variation

Post  mike67 on Sat 20 Dec - 13:31

I picked up the teapot and jug (with that very distinctive stopper) a couple of days ago and just happened to put the the two jugs together. Quite different on close examination and most obvious the base size. I would like to know the time frames for the two!
I presume the teapot is the same as Jeremy's. 150 mm to top and 170 mm handle to spout.

Sorry Mike, I missed that. I was on holiday at the time.

Yes your teapot appears to be a match for mine.

I have just had a look inside it for a catch up as I got this before I knew about the hand potting and now I see that yes it is hand-potted. But no initials.

Base diameter is three inches by the finger measure.

Lid belongs but is not a good fit.

The yellow does not look as bright as on your one but that could be the lighting.

Here's mine again.

Not sure that these are made by Beach as most look like the ware made by Peter Lowry, so I will move this into his topic.
