This neat vintage stoneware jug is a fun, collectible piece that will look great in any décor.
The jug shows some expected wear that gives it a rich vintage look. It has that great old-world appeal that will add a hand-hewn charm to your collection.
Stoneware was the predominant houseware in most American homes in the 19th century.
The pottery is made of clay and fired at incredibly high temperatures (up to 1315° Fahrenheit). This process essentially turns the clay into stone, hence the name.
The top of the jug is a dark shade of reddish-brown while the base is a pretty organic shade of beige-gray.
Weighing almost 7 pounds, the jug is certainly substantial.
As you can see, the jug shows a fair amount of cosmetic wear, but is structurally strong. It remains in good vintage condition and has a beautiful look that collector's of functional pottery will adore.
