Really Big & Bold 3 Gallon Antique Stoneware Beehive Whiskey Jug. Super Display Quality in Great Shape, Deep Brown with Lots of Character and Lines from Hand Spun Crafting.
Approx: 15.5" H x 9.75" D, 12.5 lbs. Terrific old beehive crock jug from a private collector's estate. Very large & deep brown 3 gallon jug makes a perfect compliment to a crock jug collector's treasure trove or someone looking for a perfect jug to compliment your home's decor. The jug has really neat glaze stain runs or drips down sides, some color variations and nice hand spun grooves that enhance it's charm. It is in great shape with only a few minor scuffs from age.
There is a slight clay indention on bottom edge, but it looks to be from production and it does not really effect jug's overall appeal (you can view in pictures). There are no notable cracks, chips or breaks, very solid piece. Handle is thick and strong. It's a heavy jug at just under 12.5 lbs. Has number 3 etched in top as shown in pictures.
Based on our experience with these old crock jugs, we feel this is a fairly old work, perhaps mid 1800's to late 1800's, but no later. We obtained from a private collector's estate along with some jugs dating to pre Civil War era, but we have no way to date it exactly, as it is not marked. Let us know if you have questions. Note: the light color variations near bottom of jug in pictures are just that and not chips, it is just where stain was thinner and produced a lighter shade of brown. Please look over all pictures taken for your consideration and use zoom feature if needed.We shot in different lighting, some with and without flash to capture various details of piece.
