HS:MS - Jug

The HS:MS word for today is:
Jug
A container from which eases the pouring of liquid. Show us your jugs! A-hem.

I got this a couple of years ago when my Dad's aunt & uncle moved into a home. It's been shoved at the back of a cupboard ever since, as I thought it was a bit hideous. Who knows - perhaps I'll keep it out for a couple of days and see if it grows on me (seriously doubt it though!!)

I'm sure my mum has a fish jug just like that in her loft somewhere - they were probably all the rage at some time, see you on Antiques Roadshow in a few years!

They sure do look interesting though!

I was going to suggest keeping them for a few more years, then taking them to the Antiques Roadshow. People tend to throw stuff away when it goes out of fashion, so the ones that are kept become valuable. You may be sitting on a future fortune!

I'm sure my gran had one. Don't throw it as Bobs says if you can't use it then may be someonelse will pay good money to do so in a few years :)

Love the set in the background.
