Thought I would share a pic of the jug that I mentioned above, this is a salt glazed jug made by Charles Hermann, who was in business from 1856- 1886 in downtown Milwaukee, Wi. This jug is probably from around the 1880's or so. I started a long time ago collecting stoneware from this period of time.. more specifically from Milwaukee, and have amassed a pretty good sized collection. Back then you just brought your jug to the liquor store (General store) and they filled it for you .. right from the barrel.

Nice set of jugs you've got there!

But they don't match. That always bothers me.
