• Item 5213

     

    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.
