Pintie Milk bottle milk jug by Whosglass

Milk jug
We've featured various ways of re-using old milk bottles in the past, from vases to light shades. These Pintie Milk bottle milk jugs from Whosglass offer a use that's a bit closer to their original function. 

These bottles have been hand-manipulated and made into jugs. They retain their original decoration, so feature charming retro advertising like the one for Kellogg's cornflakes shown in the image above. Other bottles for sale feature adverts for Ready Break, as well as various tea and hot chocolate brands. 

The jugs cost £19.95.
