The Second Look..........

Its old, filthy, unloved and discarded, BUT..........its strong, strudy, no chips or cracks and still holding it's grand old shape!



Add some elbow greese, a good cup of bi-carb, a trough full of scolding hot water and.........




Oh....yes well worth that second look!!

Very much so. I have three, working jugs, in my house that I love. The design is simple, functional and tactile. I have been looking for a cheaper one of the shape you have, but sellers want you to sign a child over for one.
