Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this fantastic 1 Gallon Jug made for "J. J. Duffy, 458 River Street, Troy, N.Y."
Duffy was born on Christmas Day 1855 and ran a liquor strore in Troy from as early as 1880. This jug dates from the early period since it is salt glaze and the address has not expanded to 458-60 River Street which it does as the business grew.
This beauty features a One Gallon Size with Gorgeous Dark and Bold Stenciled Advertising. The larger letters are a full 1 1/2" tall! Typically this stencil is on a 2 gallon jug, so it really fills the front of this 1 gallon! Visually very attractive. Stands 11 1/2" tall.
Very Good Condition. Two pinhead-size nibbles and one 1/4" flake on the spout, a 3/4" chip on the left side of the handle, and a 3/8" shallow chip on back at the bottom. That's it! No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
