Found this handsome Stoneware Batter Jug in upstate New York. It measures 10 ¾ inches high to the top of the lid handle by approximately 9 ¼ inches across from end of spout to wooden bale handle. It is marked on the back, just below the top rim opening cuff, Brady & Craft, Ellenville, N.Y. and, it’s in great age-related condition. It’s hard to comprehend how much batter must have been poured from this vessel and yet, it remains in good age-related condition with only a minor chip in the elephant ear handle at lower backside. This grip handle was used to help lift the jug bottom and balance out the weight when pouring. The bale handle is anchored well with a wooden grip and is aged oxidized. The metal cover on the top fits snugly into the opening of which there are no chips. There are no cracks in this jug either, it’s a beauty. At one time there was a cap for the pour spout, but is no longer there; I’m sure separated from the jug many years ago. The rim edge of the pour spout also has no chips. The jug is glazed on the inside and it is clean. It’s a great piece of history. Sales tax for all states that require it must be added and is calculated on purchase price including shipping and handling.
