Early Jug Handle Shape




Just came across a jug in a second-hand shop - on its own, just the jug - which caught my attention because of the shape of the handle. It is almost triangular in cross section, and is a very simple "ear" shape.

On closer inspection, I made the further discovery that the handle is riveted to the metal, not bolted. This was common with the early models, so I'm picking this is a fairly early example. I have seen pictures of this handle shape before, but this is the first time I have actually seen it in real life, so I thought I'd post a pic or two.

Looks like a "B" jug to me. so 50s, i'd say. Greetings, mik

hello there Tony,
that is a jug from the earliest 'b' little machines- perhaps the earliest of all the robbiati atomics... I have the same jug in my collection. You found it in an op shop? the odds of that are tiny. I will happily buy it from you- as I have a lonesome B missing its jug.... hope all is well,
regards,
jack
