Made by Sunshine Electrix circa 1930

Sunshine Electrix takes its name from the inner-western Melbourne suburb of Sunshine, VIC, where it was headquartered. Two transfer stickers were applied, one Sun inspired Sunshine Electrix brand logo was applied on the left side while underneath electrical specifications are given. The decagon form lent itself to many variations in design. A right-angled handle at the rear is speckled/mottled, with the affect tracing the round base and top of the jug leaving the geometric belly of the jug bare. A ceramic swing lid was used during the 1930s until development of durable Bakelite. In the 1950s the Ten Sider Jug was re released with a reshape to accommodate a Bakelite flip lid.

Ten Sider jugs in good condition with intact transfers are highly sought-after collectables, to see one for yourself check out the Powerhouse Museum's collection.
