Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this rare 6 1/2" Jug made for "J. Ettinger, Wholesale Liquors, 344 Ontario Street, Cleveland, O."
Ettinger was a saloon and liquor store owner in Cleveland in the late 19th century. The jug comes with a three page article from the Ohio Bottle Club about Ettinger and the rarity of this jug.
This beauty features a Small 6 1/2" Size, Two-Toned Glaze, and Four Lines of Cobalt Advertising. A very bold presentation indeed.
Excellent Condition. A couple small glaze wear spots on the handle. That's it! No chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. What looks like a vertical hairline to the right of the stencil is a slightly raised line in the clay in the making.
