I answered an estate cleanout ad from craigs list and did pretty well. As usual the real good finds were not bottle related, but I did get a few bottles. This one is dark aqua, label with no embossing and a crude ground screw top. Unfortunately the bottom of label that probably had the city and state is gone. Anyone ever seen this one or know where it's from? I don't think it is local as maple syrup was and still is sold in this area in gallon tin cans right from the farm. I thought $10 was too much but bought it anyway because I liked it.

Also got this Lorrillard snuff with full labels and a Cohansey lid and wire closure which I thought was more reasonably priced at $5

Here's a large 6 gallon churn with the Indian head ink stamp. THe stamp is hard to make out so I can't read the name but I know I've seen it before, does anyone know the name and location of this pottery? I don't think it's local to Northeast Ohio if I remember right. For $15 with no cracks and only a few in the making imperfections, this one I thought was a good deal. I also got some local milks that I had not ever seen before, along with a truckload of other, better stuff inlcuding some porcelain and other signs for real cheap.

That is a standard VT Maple Syrup form. I've seen several, like Hazen's Pure, that are VT manufacturers, and none so far that aren't. Despite being screw cap, they've usually appeared to be BIM, so I've always assumed 1890's ish. I've seen a later form that is ABM, and then they went to the tin cans that were only recently phased out.

Pity it doesn't have VT town on the label. I'd be interested for my mother's collection.

The last P. Lorrillard I sold like yours I got $10.00 no labels, I assume ABM with 1872 date on lid?

Great finds Todd,....The maple syrup is way cool. I have some syrup related odds and ends, and a syrup boottle vr. similar to yours,...don't know where it's from either. I used to work in a "Sugar bush" yaers back and find the syrup and even honey bottles pretty cool. Anyone recognize the name on this one? Josyln's maple syrup.

Joe, yours looks about the same age as mine, maybe 1890s, apparently that is a standard maple syrup form. I had never seen one before, probably because so much syrup and sugar was made around here, they wouldn't have sold commercial brands, and I think that early they were still making mostly maple sugar not syrup at least in this area. I also have some of the early tin cans with local names on them which make an interesting thing to collect.

Hey Todd,

Is this the mark?

"Your butter churn is a piece of stoneware from the Cherokee line, made by the Louisville Pottery after 1906, which used the Blue Indian Head stencil mark.

There's a new book about Kentucky Art Pottery that discusses the Louisville Pottery -- Clear as Mud: Early 20th Century Kentucky Art Pottery -- http://leoweekly.com/ae/book-clear-mud
