Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this uncommon 2 Gallon Merchant Jug made for "Hagen & Travers, Wholesale Liquors, Buffalo, N.Y." They were located on 308 Elk Street.
It is stamped "Lyons, N.Y." and I suspect the maker is the Lyons Co-Operative Pottery Company. which followed Jacob Fisher in Lyons around the year 1902 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 74). This was a short-lived pottery which may explain why I cannot find another salt-glazed example of this jug-- they are all bristol glaze from whatever pottery these merchants then hired to make their jugs.
This beauty features the Pottery Stamp, and Three Lines of Impressed Advertising with Cobalt Wash. Stands 13" tall.
Excellent Condition. A flat 1/4" chip on the top of the spout in the back. That's it! No base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
