Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful Exquisitely Molded Little Jug made for "Casey's Whiskey, Wm. Jennings, Dolgeville, N.Y."
It was made by the Whites of Utica, New York Pottery between 1890 and 1907 when Whites made its fabulous molded stoneware. This piece is featured with different advertising in Christopher Bensch, The Blue and the Gray: Oneida County Stoneware, p. 23.
This beauty features a Medallion on the Front with the Embossed Advertising Accented with Cobalt aand Floral Flourishes, nd a Spanking Machine on the Back! As the man turns a crank, 6 boots rotate and kick him in the behind! A beaded border at the base of the neck, fancy borders at the side seams, and a floral border at the bottom complete the decoration. Strong mold lines and coloration. Stands 6 3/4" tall.
I have only seen two other examples of this jug.
Excellent Condition. A tiny 1/4" surface line on the edge of the right side of the handle, and two chips on the base (pinhead, 3/16"). That's it! No spout chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
