South African Porcelain – Hotelware Jug Rhodesia – Continental China
13cm high – base 10cm
This jug is in such nice condition considering it is hotel ware from the Miekles hotel which was 100 in 2015!! Although of course I don’t know when they were using this type of jug!
I collected jugs and have had this one for a number of years – it just seems to be full of history .
I am offering this one as I really have too many!
There is one chip on the base. See pictures. No chips or cracks otherwise.
I am including a link to the History of this iconic “Rhodesian” Hotel which is still in operation in the now Zimbabwe in case you are interested.
1915 – Meikles Hotel was officially opened on November 15.
“2015 – Meikles Hotel turned 100-years-old. It was the brainchild of Thomas Meikles who envisioned a commitment to the “highest possible standard of service and product” – something that has become enshrined in the Meikles culture.
It has always been an iconic landmark of capital city Harare, one which has constantly and gracefully evolved through the colonial era of Rhodesia into modern- day Zimbabwe. Its position in the heart of the city has allowed its walls to bear witness to many events that have shaped the nation’s past.”
