For sale is an extremely rare and collectible round stoneware paper label MERRY CHRISTMAS HAPPY NEW YEAR paper label jug. Research highlights that the Foust distillery gave this type of jug to friends, relatives and customers for the holidays. It dates to the early 1900s.... It is known through research that few were produced or distributed.
The bottom of the label lists Compliments of with a now unreadable panel area at the bottom which allegedly highlighted the Foust Distillery - Glen Rock Pa. When the jug was originally produced, I was informed the distillery markings were highlighted in red ink. Unfortunately red ink is the first to fade away overtime when hit by sunlight.
As such, over the years, the red ink portion highlighting the distillery brand faded. However the other areas of the label are clearly readable, but again, not the former red markings of the distillery. Overall, the stoneware jug is in good condition with no chips or cracks - has crazing from age.
Stands approximately 4 1/2" tall x 2 5/8" diameter at the base. The jug includes the original cork stopper with chain attached to the handle. The stoneware jug has a paper label marked Merry Christmas Happy New Year! Please carefully review all pictures to determine condition and do not hesitate to ask questions.
