Celebrating 100 years of NilsenSince 1916

Nilsen produced the iconic Aussie Kookaburra Jugs

Electric kettles were invented by the English to speed up tea preparation but a fear of electrocution hindered their production in Britain and America. Australians however, were a braver lot and fancy ceramic electric jugs quickly became a status symbol during the Great Depression era. Anyone who could offer to boil you a cuppa from a beautiful Electric Kookaburra Jug was certainly doing well! Made by Nilsen Porcelain Australia in the 193Os, these kettles were unique for their charming art deco bird shape.

While metal and plastic have dominated production for the last 35 years, the original ceramic kettles are becoming popular again. Nilsen Electric Kookaburra Jugs are now regarded as a classic Aussie icon and hold prized positions in many vintage enthusiasts’ collections.
