Lime Green Empire Vacuum Jug Flask from yay retro!

Yesterday I found this wonderful lime green or citrine coloured vintage Empire Porcelain Vacuum Flask, I've seen them in black, blue and burgundy, but never this wonderful must-have lime colour! This is so of this season it has the feel of being made yesterday, but of course it's actually from the 1950s!

This design is called The Chiltern Jug, which was made by fabulously named 'Acme Vacuum Flask Ltd' company in Wales. The ceramic part was produced by the Empire Porcelain co, and is absolutely typical of Empire's designs at the time. Fantastic! You can find this fabulous item here in the yay retro! shop.
