Excellent condition. One very tiny flake on the back side near the handle like it got bumped just a tiny bit (the spot is smaller than a pencil eraser and very very shallow). The outer rim of the top of the jug has a couple of very small chips in it, but they're not really noticeable at all. There is just a hint of cobalt color inside the lettering.
The jug reads:
J & JR Trippe.
Druggists No 90 & 93
M. Lane. N.Y.
From looking them up online, they were in business in the mid 1800's at 90 Maiden Lane in New York City. The name and address is listed in Longworth's American Almanac New York Register from 1834.
The jug measures about 10 1/2" tall. The last photo shows a quarter for a size reference.
