Thank you so much for responding to my question. Do you also know if the McAlpine jug manufacture used a ribbed mould? I am researching the jug as part of a UTAS (Hobart)unit, and not having access to Valerie Monks books I am gathering info where I can as well as asking my NZ family about their use of the jug.
Thanks again
Regards
Linda

There are some McAlpine Jugs on the site and yes they were all ribbed.
They do vary in weight by about 0.1kg I am told.
Various other fridge companies also got Crown Lynn to supply them with fridge jugs, e.g. Prestcold and Kelvinator.
They were first made in 1959 and I remember that everyone who bought a fridge in the 1960's got a free fridge jug, regardless of the maker.

A couple of years ago it was discovered that Fake Crown Lynn fridge jugs were being made in China as well as Swans.
