Oh boy, do I have a great pair of jugs to show you fine folks!

The first one is this sort of ovoid Albany Slip jug, I think it's a quart size? maybe? My local expert estimates 1850's on the age. Bought it locally here in western NY.

The second jug is another ovoid one, this one I believe to be 2 gallons, has some cobalt blue on it. Also had my expert weigh in on the age when I stopped to buy a cheapo cork for it today, he says 1830's, 1840's like the jug in my other thread. Only bigger. And a bit more.....primitive. It's got some marks and stuff on it. But I really like imperfections in my bottles/stoneware....up to a limit of course.

Okay! I love to look at jugs too! Damn! You just can't seem to NOT say that, it's so hilarious! LOL! Nice! You know, this brings to a more serious side of "jugs." I recently found some good quality clear glass jugs. Probably from the 70's at an old abandoned farm house. Since I'm not sure of the value, I only grabbed one to actually use. The old clay ones you have are obviously of greater value. But, do the old glass jugs hold any value, since they no longer really make them anymore? Should I go collect the ones I left behind?

I do not personally know of any glass jugs from the 70's that are particularly valuable but I could be wrong I suppose

Another great jug find today! Which is good because I've scoured over just about every antique store within a 50 mile radius this winter, with the weather being so agreeable. I'm running out of places to look. But I digress.

I feel like I got a good deal on it. It does seem to be a Jacob Fisher jug (he was a prolific well-regarded potter in the late 19th century here in NY)

I managed to have the vendor knock $50 off it because I wasn't crazy about the "faded" look of it.

Or at least that's what I said ;)

All rightie, I guess this topic has reached the point where it's just me running away with my jug obsession, with no one besides debodun trying to keep up. Fair enough, this is primarily a bottle site after all.

Anyway, here's one with turkey droppings. (he said to himself as he posted the picture of the jug he's already seen for himself)
