Copper milk jug designed by Jan Eisenloeffel (1876-1957) in approximately 1900. Eisenloeffel became famous for his sober designs of utility products, executed in noble as well as base metals. In the beginning of his career he believed that 'common' people should have access to well-designed utility products. This milk jug is an example of his early work from the 1900s. This industrially manufactured work became popular abroad. His work was exhibited all around the world. After 1908 he started designing richly ornamented, valuable products. Nowadays, his work can be admired in museums like Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
