Love this Jug! Found upstate NY near Cortland; the jug is a great example of what American pottery is. The 1 Gallon Bee Hive Dome shaped Molasses Jug is always an eye-catcher. The deep dark sugar brown glaze color will add a great accent to other lighter colored stoneware. This jug, measures 9 ½ inches tall with an 8 inch diameter base. It’s in age-related condition with some imperfections that one would expect to find on early 1900s pottery. The flange around the pour spout opening has 3 chips in color glaze and the handle has a few glaze nicks but is otherwise solid with no cracks. The jug has been washed clean and is free of all interior debris. It amazes me how little children manage to fit little toys in little holes. All and all the ca. early 1900s Molasses Jug is smart looking and deserving of a home on one’s shelf. Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State. Local tax rate applies.
