History and use
This jug and tag are part of the Ben Ronalds collection of fine ceramics and glassware. The jug is part of a set.

Over his lifetime, Ronalds acquired a world-class collection of Royal Worcester and comparative pieces from other ceramics and glassware manufacturers.

Benjamin Charles Ronalds (born 1892, died 1970) migrated to Australia in 1911 from England, having served an apprenticeship in the glass trade. In Brisbane, he worked with Oxlades glaziers before opening the Decorative Glass Company in West End from 1924, and his success supported his passion, formed in 1946, to collect Royal Worcester porcelain. Over the next almost 25 years he built up a remarkable collection of that factory’s products. As well as collecting locally, he made several trips overseas, and many interstate to Melbourne and Adelaide.
