Large Green Gurgling Cod

Green Gurgling Cod® Pitcher, Large, approximately 11″ tall, holds 1 qt.

These whimsical fish-shaped jugs are available in two sizes – large measuring 11″, small measuring 6.5″.

In 1964, Shreve, Crump & Low introduced their Gurgling Cod®, Pitcher at the request of Benjamin Dale Shreve (whose son, Richard, would be the last family member to run the company). The Gurgling Cods were modeled after a traditional English “glug jug”, which was relatively unknown in the United States. Turn one over and pour out water to hear this delightful sound.

Since its introduction in 1964, the Gurgling Cod® has become a well-known symbol of Boston. Customers across the country associate these fanciful works of art exclusively with Shreve, Crump & Low. Part of what makes Shreve, Crump & Low’s cod pitchers unique are their anatomically correct fins, gills, and scales of a fish native to our very own waters, as well as their unique shape. This is why a Gurgling Cod®, Pitcher will forever remind one of New England, whether viewed at our stores or anywhere in the world. The Gurgling Cod®, is made exclusively for Shreve, Crump & Low and sold only in our stores or through our web site.
