Charlestown, Mass., Stoneware Jug - $325.00

9" round x 14" high.

This Stoneware Jug is a 2 gallon one for Powers and Demands, Charlestown, Mass. There is a cork stopper at the top, probably original to the piece. This is a wonderful piece of memorabilia from that area. Charlestown was the oldest neighborhood in Boston and is located on a peninsula north of the Charles River. It adjoins the Mystic River and Boston Harbor, so it was a Naval hub at the turn-of-the 20th century. This jug is a treasured part of that community.
