    G Myers Barnesville, Ohio jug

    I was first to arrive at a yard sale yesterday morning with the usual baby stuff and made in China junk when I spotted a group of crocks and jugs under a table. Mostly just common brown and white stuff, but I found this one
    G Myers (could be Hyers) & Co. Dealers in Dry Goods Groceries & C. Baresville, Ohio. I am almost certain that someone forgot to put the N in Barnesville on the stencil as this small town is located in southeast Ohio where this style of stoneware was made.

    RE: G Myers Barnesville, Ohio jug

    I also got this Hamilton & Jones wax sealer in perfect condition. Both stoneware pieces and a galvanized sprinkling can for $40, a real good deal. Has anyone seen this jug before? I suspect there are not too many out there as Barnesville was and is a small town. Is it possible to get the handle repaired? I normally wouldn't bother, but it is such a nice jug, I might consider getting it repaired. I really like the look of the southeast Ohio and PA stoneware with the combination stencil and freehand blue and this is the first nice example I've been able to find.

    I think you got a good deal on them . That kind of stuff never shows up at yard sales in my area , or at least not for me when I go to them I would definitely get the jug repaired if I had it , that's a nice piece . I live in Ohio and do not remember ever hearing of the name of that town . Good luck with the jug should you decided to have it repaired .

    Very nice. I've also never found anything like that at a yard sale. I don't know anything about them but I would have jumped on the pair for that price.

    Wonderful find, Todd,

    I'd think that public nudity is probably still frowned upon in Barnesville, too. [8D]

    Do get it repaired.

    RE: G Myers Barnesville, Ohio jug

    Thanks everyone. While not my best yard sale find of the year, it was the most exciting as I will be keeping this one, not reselling it. Is the repair something I should do myself or have professionally done? Does anyone have any advice on how to do it or where to take it for repair?

    I`m gonna go out on a limb and guess.....unless you are a potter, I`d say get a pro to handle it.
