Thermos Jug, 1930s

This elegant jug is marked "Thermos (1925) Limited – London", but patents for the vacuum system design were registered in 1930. 1925 is possibly the year the American Thermos Bottle company was established in UK. It was molded from Plaskon (urea formaldehyde) plastic, with metallic handle. Thermos produced a number of amazing designs.

It is 24,5cm high.

 

juliensart made me a nice Happy New Year card with a dark mottled bakelite one, to die for!
