European Milk Jar
This is a milk jar in European design, with a flip on top. Made in Czechoslovakia and was used in 19th and early 20th century. In those days wealthy families work closely with the British in Strait Settlement, and quickly adopted some of their kitchen wares and culinary practices. During this era, the only community that has had easily adopted the British practice were the Tamil community. Taking afternoon tea or coffee was one of the regular practice daily for Indian people, so this European design jar was used to serve milk at that time. Bought in Singapore and there is Tamil word inscribed on it. It is considered as rare kitchen ware for Indian community.
