• Item 5753

     

    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 4 1/4" Motto Jug.  

     

    This beauty reads, "Motto Jug. 'Eart, drink and be merry.' 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 to find mottos.  Stands 4 1/4" tall. 

     

    Exceptional Condition.  As made.  No damage of any kind.
