1800s Jug - half gallon
This stoneware jug is similar to the style of jugs made during the early 19th century. The jugs became taller and narrower than those of the previous century. Plus the handles tended to come from the neck rather than the shoulder of the jug. Of course these are just general trends and jugs could vary from pottery to pottery.
This half gallon jug is approx. 8½" tall and holds 64 oz. The jug shown is an example of the 1800s jug and not necessarily the one shipped if purchased. All jugs are glazed in appropriate colors for the period, but not necessarily the glaze shown.
