Pre-prohibition I. W.harper Stoneware Whiskey Jug And Mini Jug Louisville :
These two I.W. Harper jugs are being sold for one price. Both in perfect condition. The mini jug is not the more common of the Harper mini jugs. It usally sells for about three times what the large jug sells for. Both come from the I.W. Bernheim and Brothers Distillery, Louisville, Nelson County Kentucky. The larger jug celebrates Harper's award at the 1884-5 World's Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition in New Orleans. A nice pair and you can't beat the quality! Guaranteed.I start all of my sales low, believing that value, like water, seeks its own level.

I just noticed that the handle has two hairlines in the handle. One is about 1/3rd down underneath the handle. The other is about 2/3rds the way down on top of the handle. Neither goes all the way through. They are consistent with annealing cracks at the time of manufacture. Neither is serious nor detracts. Mentioned for purpose of accurate description. I apologize for not catching this. They've been sitting on my display shelves for over ten years . If they had disturbed me, I would not have bought them. However you should feel free to withdraw your offer or feel free to return them if youwin the offer if you disagree with my correction.
