I got this from an estate in SouthWest Iowa. The line on the bottom is just that, a line it is NOT a crack!! The chip on the top edge is glazed over, so it was done at the factory, where ever that was. It looks to me like there is possible a small piece that was broken off and glued back in on the top edge also, as you can see looking at it, it does not really show up. In 48 years as a full time antique dealer, I have never before had a 10 gallon beehive jug, so they cant be very common. I would drive as far as 100 miles towards you to cut it down.
