Today we are happy to offer for sale a rare antique 19th century stoneware advertising jug.
This diminutive but sturdy piece of stoneware is nicely crafted and detailed. The piece features a round and compact body which tapers off at the top. The upper section and handle is glazed in glossy brown while the lower body features a darker ecru color. The front of the piece reads “The Washington Co. Importers/ No 31 Washington St/ Providence, RI”. This was most likely a small promotional advertising piece to promote the company.
Jug presents beautifully and is in very good antique condition, with minimal display wear and patina and no chips or cracks.
Dimensions: 4-7/8″ in height, 2-3/4″ in diameter
