Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 1/2 Gallon Merchant Jug that reads, "From Stowe, Bradford & Co., 132 State St., Boston."

Made about 1870, this beauty features a small 1/2 gallon size, four lines of impressed advertising with cobalt wash, and a freehand cobalt tulip.  Stands only 8 3/4" tall. 


Excellent condition.  A 1/4" chip on the bottom of the spout on the right side, a 1/2" chip on the shoulder on the left side that is partially in the making, small chips around the base (1/4" or less), and two flat 1/2" chips on the underside.  No hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. 


An uncommon decorated 1/2 gallon Boston merchant jug.
