Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this most unusual 2 Gallon New York City Merchant Jug with Advertising in Italian. It reads, "Mariani Bros., Incorporated, 'Primaria Casa Importatrice' Grosserie, Dolci E Contetti. Olii Profumerie, Vini, Liquori, Sigari E Tabacchi. Specialita' Medicinali, 505 WEst Broadway, New York City, Catalogo Gratis a Tutti, A Richiesta"
My translation into English, "Mariani Bros., Incorporated, 'Primary Import House' Wholesalers in Sweets and Candy. Perfume Oils, Wines, Liquors, Cigars and Tobacco. Medicine Specialist, 505 West Broadway, New York City, Catalog Free to All upon Request."
Dating between 1900 and 1920, this beauty features 11 Lines of Stenciled Advertising with Center Trademark. The stencil is clear and detailed. A very detailed glimpse into an Italian merchant in New York City in the early 20th century.
Exceptional Condition. As made. No damage of any kind.
