 The Jug-handle design made its appearance early in the 20th century.  It represented a variation of the popular Continental style that began towards the end of the 19th century and continued as late as 1920.  Basically, the jug-handle was a hand grip added to the limb of the microscope.  At its best, the design was integrated and sleek in an early streamlined style.  At its simplest, the design was nothing more than a handle added to the back of the continental base and looked a bit clumsy and awkward.  The style did not last long, peaking around 1909 and ending before 1920.
