***FREE UPS GROUND SHIPPING****
This jug has been in storage for decades in a barn in southern Alabama, so has the corn cob stopper used to plug the jug. And over the past few years the owner of the estate has picked choice items to sell off and I was ever so fortunate to acquire this.
The jug is in very fine condition, minor flecks in finish can be found, spout has a chip 3/4 of an inch. Redware being softer than other clay pottery, makes this large jug a rare survivor.
The rich black glaze over the red clay offer many different facets to its color hue throughout the day and night.
I have not and will not attempt to remove the corn cob plug, I do not want to disturb it or break the cob, no amount of money can reproduce the aesthetic value this adds to the jug.
Previous owner estimated the age at early 1900's
Dimensions are: Height-17 inch's to top of spout
Diameter - 12 inchs across the base tapering wider toward top
I have included in the photos a reference to the size comparing to an average bbq propane tank.
