This is a nice and solid 19th century 3 gallon stoneware jug by Edmands & Co, and is rather unique, in that I have had dozens of stoneware jugs, and seen hundreds perhaps thousands more, but never have seen one that just simply had what presumably is someones initials. Although I cant tell for certain if it is a GC, or a GE, I suppose it could arguably be either, so it should be extra special to anyone who has those initials. Perhaps it was the initials of someone who worked for Edmands, as there were up to 40 potters working for the company at their peak, sometime between the years of 1850 and 1865.
Very nice condition, with minor imperfections, only worthy of mention being the chip on the left middle and a slight hairline on the bottom that is almost negligible enough to be a figment of my imagination, and worth noting that it passes the knock test. Please you pictures closely and carefully as they represent a large part of this description, zooming in as needed.
