Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this spectacular Blue and White 4 Gallon Water Cooler in the Cupid Pattern.
It was made by the Western Stoneware Company of Monmouth, Illinois. Three sizes were listed in the 1926 catalogue: 4, 5, and 6 gallons. See Moumouth-Western Stoneware by Jim Martin and Bette Cooper, p. 82.
