Hello from a cold and rainy Honolulu. We're due for some possible flooding this week. Thought I should make use of the first bit of sunlight I've seen all day to show off a new find.

I was up in Hilo on Big Island the other week and stopped by the local Goodwill. Inside, they had four stoneware chicken waterers. Three large size (about the same as a 1-gallon jug) and a small one which is the size of a half-gallon jug. I could only fit the half gallon in my suitcase so I had to leave the other three sadly. Bought the little sucker for three dollars! I asked my friend if he'd be willing to buy and ship one of the large-sized waterers but he declined.

Well, I'm still happy to have this. My collector friend said that it's maybe 1890-ish and that these are kind of rare. What say you guys? Have you seen one of these before? Are these rare? Personally, I'd never even known this was a thing until I saw it at Goodwill.

Mahalos guys an Aloha!

I've seen a lot of them over the years. The interesting ones are the ones that are marked, but unfortunately very few of them seem to have a lot of value.

Sorry to get back to you so late. Just about the only meds I seriously collect are Oriental Medicines. I don't have much interest in American meds. Would still be nice to dig one though.
