How to select antique jugs, tins and jars?

Choose from an impressive collection of antique jars, storage jars and spice tins to create an air of history in your kitchen space. Tea caddies and antique tins with original lettering are perfect for building an antique kitchenware collection. Explore rounded spouts and handles with swirling lines, or angular antique ceramic jugs with a minimalistic look, depending on your tastes and space. Our listings make it easy for antique lovers to beautify their homes with items to suit any budget.

Antique tins and jugs steeped in history

Each beautiful item has a story to tell. Snuff boxes and bottles were common in the 17th century UK when powdered tobacco was stored in chests tiny enough for a waistcoat pocket. Cannisters, jugs and pots for tea and coffee create evocative images of how these popular beverages have been stored and served throughout the centuries. Each antique jar, tin and jug on our site contains a detailed description, bringing it to life so you can learn all about it, just like you would in an antique shop.

How can you use an antique pottery jug?

While many of our attractive antique pottery jugs are for ornamental use, most can be repurposed and given a new lease of life in the home. Use to display seasonal blooms or serve infused water to parched guests on a summer’s day. An antique tobacco jar, spice jar or spirit measure may once have had a specific purpose, but it’s up to you how you use your second-hand bounty. Oil jars with small openings are excellent for displaying ornamental grasses, while jewellery boxes or pharmacy bottles are handy for trinkets, essential oils or keys. Or you could use antique tins and jugs as a new home for a favourite plant.

Where to find antique jugs for sale?

Our antique jugs and tins selection contains items from all over the world, to inspire and impress. Indian containers are typically made from sturdy wood or ornate metal. And Chinese and Japanese receptacles often come adorned with colourful nature-inspired designs. Why not display these antique tins and jars alongside other beautifully crafted items such as mirrors and clocks, which we’ve hand-picked to inspire you? Use our handy marketplace to browse thousands of antique jugs and use the filter to hone down your search – it’s so much more straightforward than traipsing around antique shops for that tea caddy, biscuit barrel or sugar canister you’re looking for.
