Here at Arundell our Gluggle jugs are some of our best sellers, with many of our customers enjoying the beautiful design and fascinating sound of the ‘glug glug’ jug. Designed in the shape of a fish, they are uniquely created so that, when water is poured out of them, there is a ‘glug glug’ sound. Not only is this a lovely feature for entertaining, it is something that children absolutely love.

Hand Painted Glug Glug Jug

Gluggle jugs are available in a range of colours while maintaining the classic design, ensuring that every home can have a ‘gurgle jug’ to match their existing accessories or décor. Not only are they extremely useful, they can also be used as beautiful ornaments around the home, offering a dual purpose. And not only do these water jugs look great, they have a rich history behind them too.

The initial design of these jugs can be traced back to the 1870s and Thomas Forester & Son, but it is Dartmouth Pottery that most people associate them with. The rich history continued in 1958 when the Queen and Prince Philip were presented with a pair of jugs at Britannia Naval College, helping them to become collector’s items.

Gluggle Jug - Blue

In 2002 Dartmouth Pottery closed and the future of Gluggle jugs was safeguarded by Wade Ceramics and Gluggle Ltd. Wade Ceramics bought the rights to the distinctive fish mould and since then Gluggle Ltd have been boosting the popularity of the jugs in the UK. At Arundell we’re happy to provide these beautiful jugs, with the latest addition to our range being the fantastic hand painted Gluggle jug. They are fantastic items for the home and will look great in any kitchen.
