American stoneware crock or jug, late 1800's. The jug was hand made by a potter and the construction of base, top and handle is slightly irregular. The handle itself is hand pulled with a thumbprint join. It comes from north central Pennsylvania, and was probably made from local clay.

The jug is 9 1/4" high , 6" of which is the tan base. It is 5 3/4 across the bottom. It is heavy stoneware, unmarked. In the 1800's, a jug like this was a household essential, usually holding cider or vinegar. In popular culture, these jugs held whiskey or moonshine, and indeed, many probably did! Jugs that were made for household use, instead of as a holder for a specific product, were usually unmarked, as this one is.

There is a chip on the base, as shown in the photo and a small nick on the lip of the jug.
