Gluggle jugs are fish-shaped water jugs - with a twist! They produce an amusing ‘glug glug’ sound when poured. A versatile product, and an iconic piece of British design, they can be used as a water jug, wine carafe, vase, utensil jar or ornament.


First made in the 1870s, these novelty jugs were made famous by Dartmouth Pottery in Devon. When the pottery closed in 2002 Wade Ceramics bought the mould and produced the jug in their Stoke pottery. Sadly Wade closed down in 2022, but The Gluggle Jug Factory stepped in to save jobs and keep production going. So these are still made at the same factory in Stoke. Beware of copies!


Capacity 1.3L (5-6 tumblers). Measures around 27cm high. Made from vitreous porcelain. All glazes are 100% food-safe.
