Very Rare Lner Minton Milk Jug With Art Deco Lner Logo & Blue / Silver Livery For Sale

I've been told that this is a very rare piece and even rarer to be
found in such exceptional condition. However, someone may have
been pulling my leg so I apologise if I'm wasting everybody's time.
No doubt the railwayana community will let me know very quickly!
Anyway, here goes:
This is an LNER milk jug made by Minton and bears their factory
stamp on the base with the number 36 incised near the base rim.
This may be a factory model reference number or, simply, a date
stamp for 1936. I don't know.
An Art Deco LNER logo with blue lettering inside a two-tone grey
cubist pattern diamond is transfer printed on one side of the jug.
A dual, blue and silver livery line runs around the entire circumference
of the jug, just below the top rim. A single blue, teardrop flash
runs down the centre portion of the handle.
The rim livery lines are near-perfect and unbroken. Half a dozen
teeny, tiny little marks can be found on the livery lines just below
the spout (presumably where jug and cup have made contact) and
another few little marks of wear can be found on the handle stripe.
Apart from some standing wear to the base, this fine piece is in
near-mint condition with no chips, cracks, blemishes or other
significant detriments to the integrity of the china.
I was told that because of the unusual blue / silver livery, this china
may have been specifically designed for and used on 'The Mallard' -
but I have no idea if this is possible fact or pure fiction. Nor do I
have the time, knowledge or resources to investigate that suggestion.
However, it's pretty obvious to even a layman like me that the logo
is high art deco and would therefore place the likely date of manufacture
of the item between 1928 - 1938.
Would all that make sense to those in the know?
The dimensions of the piece are as follows:
Height: 9.5cm Base Diameter: 8cm Rim Diameter: 7cm
Please feel free to ask any questions or request additional photography.
Thank you for looking and good luck if you offer.
