Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 4 1/2" Mini Motto Jug.
This beauty reads, "Motto Jug. 'As I go up the hill of prosperity, may I never meet a friend.' Detrick Distilling Company, Dayton, Ohio."
This Dayton company made a series of a dozen Motto Jugs around 1900, one without a border around the motto and one with a border. These jugs have retained their popularity with collectors due to their small size and humorous mottos.
This example is from the series without a border around the motto and features one of the harder mottos to find. Stands 4 1/2" tall.
Exceptional Condition. As made. No damage of any kind.
