Item 3740

 

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.
