Up for sale is a great, antique stoneware jug with original wood & metal bail handle and advertising from the Germa-Vici Company of Syracuse, N. This jug dates circa 1890's. Likely a high alchocol content product, this would today be considered one of the many quack remedy/cures of those times. Jug is in great shape for its age & not often found with the wood handled metal bail intact. I'm no expert on antique stoneware jugs so please enlarge all the pictures.There's plenty of crazing on the jug. A couple small glazing chips at bottom of jug straight below the right handle ear. Not sure if the cracks at tops of the handle ears are from firing or are stress cracks. Imprinted in a blue-gray color KEEP TIGHTLY CLOSED PREPARED BY The GERMA-VICI Co. DO NOT ACCEPT IF SEAL IS BROKEN. 7 3/4" tall & roughly 6 1/4" wide. Antique 1890's GERMA-VICI Quack Germ Destroyer Remedy Stoneware Jug Syracuse, NY.
