Emailul Mediaș was founded in 1921 – and since then produces enameled metal objects for the Romanian market, as well as for export. During the communist times, enameled metal objects became a staple in each household, since there were no other options for kitchenware. Lately, enameled metal pots and pan lost their shine, and Romanians are more interested in buying modern, imported goods – such as kitchenware made from Yena, Teflon or stainless steel.
Both the kettle and milk jug are typical kitchenware from the communist kitchens of the ‘80s, with the red and blue models being the most popular ones.
