Hello and thank you for visiting Black Feathers on line store, where you will find a wide array of primitive and country smalls. As a life long Northern New England resident, I have been fortunate to be in the area where some of the best American, Folk-Art and Colonial life items have been discovered with more treasures yet to be found! I also have a great interest in books and early American bottles and glass. All the items listed are guaranteed authentic and any imperfections will be noted. Reasonable offers are encouraged and I will try to work with you on shipping also. I accept checks and PayPal. I ship via UPS or USPS, which is not included in the price. Fresh items will be added often, so frequent visits to the Black Feathers store should be worth while and always know you can shop with confidence. Thank you, Carrie

Orange-ish brown glazed half gallon jug with applied strap handle that is ribbed. Jug has great semi-ovid form and due to its firing process, changes from deep orange/brown color to a lighter shade as you turn to the opposite side.
