    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this sweet little 1/2 Gallon Harvest Jug from the Midwest.


    Harvest jugs were carried out into the field on the farm.  The smaller spout is for drinking and the larger one for filling and cleaning.  The handle made it easy to carry and the stoneware construction helped to keep the liquid cold.  The drink was often Switchel or "haymaker's punch," is a drink made of water mixed with vinegar, and sweetened with molasses or sugar.  I remember my mother making it for her brother who farmed next to our property.  


    Circa 1900, this beauty features the Typical Double-Spout and Handled Form with a Top Dipped in Albany Slip Glaze.   Wonderful small size.  Stands 7 1/2" to the top of the handle.


    Exceptional Condition.  As made.  No damage of any kind.  What may look like a small chip on the top of the smaller spout is a glaze skip in the making.
