Normandie Water Jug Silver-plated
The ‘Normandie’ water jug is a beautiful example of Jean Puiforcat’s cutlery design. It is a stylish addition to any tableware collection and the stringently geometric shape is particularly eye-catching.
Stylistic and functional, the water jug is ideal for daily use. Its stocky shape is crafted in polished brass and shaped by hand using the traditional hammering technique. It is fitted with a molded lid that has been riveted and ensures that the contents stay safe inside.
Classic and authentically designed for a sophisticated table setting, the “Normandie” water jug is an exclusive addition to the Puiforcat range of cutlery. The slender, sleek jugs are available in a range of different colours and sizes.
Alternatively, this water jug can also be adorned with your own custom-made design to make it your own. It’s a great gift for any occasion.
The ‘Normandy’ jug is a favourite of collectors, with many variations in design. One of the most popular is the ‘Rouen’ style. This jug is decorated with contrasting creamy white and dark red painted zones.
Another jug is in the ‘Saintonge’ style, which is very similar to the ‘Rouen’ jug but is larger and decorated with a vine scroll motif. These were a very popular form of pottery in the medieval period.
These jugs were incredibly sturdy and could be used without spilling liquids, as long as they were filled properly and placed on a flat surface. They were also a great way to keep track of the amount of liquids you had, as they often came with numbers and marks. They were also used to transport a range of products from the farm to the market.
