I have a three 5 gallon Jug about 19" tall. One that has a 5 stamped in the mold. It reads on the side of the jar "Steinhardt Bros. & Ceo 1214123 Heudson St New York" Second one also has a 5 stamped in the mold. It reads E.Kane & Co and has a drawing of two men faces above the writing. The third jug has no marking except a blue 5 stamped on it with a circle around the 5. This is not stamped but painted on. I will try to post all three pictures. Are they worth anything?
The Steinhardt company was begun in 1872 in New York and was closed down as a result of Prohibition.
The Steinhardt and Co. jug is listed at:
"JUG - FIVE GALLON TALL STONEWARE JUG INCISED #5 W/ BLUE HAND PAINTED ADVERTISING OF 'STEINHARDT BROS & CO 121 HUDSON ST NY', STRAIGHT SIDES W/ NARROW NECK & APPLIED HANDLE, RANDOM BLUE & BROWN GLAZE BLOTCHES SIZE: 19"H X 11"D CONDITION: GOOD - $175.00"
Another Steinhardt, with the 121 Hudson St. address, is at auction with an estimated selling price of $350-$500 at:
The E. Kane jug MIGHT be from Brooklyn. I have a had a number of E. Kane jugs over the years, all with a Brooklyn address, but have not seen one like yours, with just the name.
Kane was a liquor wholesaler, same as Steinhardt. on your other jug.
