Old Chicago Advertising Stoneware Pottery Jug:
This is a 1 gallon jug. It is 10 1/2" tall and 7" bottom base diameter. Advertising is in black lettering in a square and says "Tel Humboldt 5992 / Established 1890 / A. T. Abelson / Wine and Liquor Merchant / 2148 Milwaukee Avenue / Chicago ILL". Near the bottom is the lettering in a square "1 Gal Liquid Measure".
There are some glaze skips and a large chip on the front of the spout as shown in photos. Other than some minor factory imperfections, that is everything i can find wrong. This was probably either a Red Wing or Western made jug. Not sure when this guy went out of business, but this is a real old jug. Can provide more photos if desired.
$10 flat shipping. I accept most forms of payment.
