COMP. OF MRS. E. TREVALLE HERSEY WISCONSIN STONEWARE MINIATURE WHISKEY JUG RARE
I have been dragging home "goodies" forthe past 40-50 years. Tonight I am offering (at gunpoint...sheIS a good shot) the following miniature pre-prohibition advertising stoneware mini jug with the following scratch advertising.
Mrs. E. TREVALLE
This is an extremely rare miniature jug as it has a woman's name. I have collected jugs for many years and I have only seen 5-6 with women's names; I bought them all. In the the early 1900's, when this jug was made, women owning businesses were an extremerarity. These mini jugs were given,filled with whisky, by merchants,whiskey wholesalers and dealers and the like, to favorite customers....especially atChristmas time.This little jug stands approximately 3 inches tall andhas nice glaze anddark cobalt advertising.There are no negatives here, it is about as perfectas you will find. It displaysbeautifully and you will probably never see another on like it in your lifetime.
This little jug was made by the J.A. Bauer Pottery in Paducah KY. They were in business in Paducah from 1885 to 1909 before moving out to Los Angeles. This little jug is pre-prohibition and is beautiful considering it isover 100 years old.
This will make a great addition to any whiskey jug, stoneware or pottery collection so don't miss this opportunity.
Shipping is $7.50 in the USA. We combine items where possible to save on shipping.
The opening offer is low so everybody can offer so offer early and offer often...you'll be glad you did. Thanks.
Per instructions this jug is empty.
