Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this uncommon Advertising Canteen made for the I. T. & K. Wines Company.
Dating between 1890 and 1907, this beauty was made by the Whites of Utica Pottery and is a wonderful example of the skill that Whites attained in molded stoneware.
It features a Fancy Shield with the Company Monogram with "Wine" below, and Leaves around the Edges and Handle Holders. All the decoration is raised and accented with cobalt. Retains its original handle. Stands 11" tall.
