For sale here is an early, antique, primitive, heavy, salt glazed, white with blue stenciled lettering, handled, likely half gallon or gallon size, stoneware crock or jug from Lancaster, Ohio. The jug reads LOU ROSEY / DEALER IN / WINES, LIQUORS / AND / FINE CIGARS / LANCASTER, OHIO in blue lettering on the front. Likely dates to the 1890s.
Just under 8.75 inches tall. There is a large chip in the glaze in the shoulder area and a small pin head size hole in the shoulder as well.
Hole does go partially into the stoneware but does not penetrate all the way through. There are a few chips around the heel which is normal to see on these old jugs. Displays very well despite the issues. Please review photos carefully and feel free to ask any questions.
