1970s Price Kensington PK Edward Heath Gurgling Jug

This is a lovely kitsch 1970s Price Kensington PK Edward Heath Gurgling Jug, manufactured in Staffordshire, England.

It is a caricature of Ted Heath, the UK Conservative Prime Minister: 1970-74, in a sailor's cap, and the handle is a representation of his Yacht, Morning Clouds.

Maximum Approximate Dimensions:

Base Width: 11.4cm
Height : 19cm
Depth (Handle to spout): 15cm

A wonderful collector’s item or statement piece on your afternoon tea tray or drinks trolley ! It is in fairly good condition, with no restoration work, cracks or chips. There is some age related crazing.

The maker’s green printed mark on the base was used by Price Brothers from the 1960s. It is impressed on the base with 3900, Made in England, and P&K.

Gurgling jugs are said to be intended for use as water jugs, having inherited their name due to the sound they made when liquid was poured out.  They were used extensively as advertising items by breweries, but their use as political caricatures is much more unusual.
