New Brunswick NJ Stoneware Jug. Antique Salt Glazed Stoneware Jug Made by A. Butler in the years around the Civil War in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Great dark coloring and kiln marks on this 2 gallon jug. The stoneware has a mottled patina of browns, red and earth tone clay. Butler had bought the kiln formerly owned by Ralph Stout in 1862. He later transferred his business to the kiln once operated by legendary potter George Price on Burnet St. And made all types of ware until 1875. Butler was a sharp businessman who made utilitarian stoneware for the home and then upped his game by decorating the pieces with blue cobalt floral designs and decorations. This is a two gallon size jug with no cracks or lines I can see. The handle looks strong and fine. There are about 5 bruise marks that appear original and old. One of these was not filled smooth and is glazed. Measures under 14 inches high and just over 8 inches in diameter. You can see these in the photos and please ask any questions specific to condition. On the face is a large hand applied design, in blue cobalt glaze, featuring the big number “2” front and center flanked by tulips on two sides and underneath. Above this is the makers stamp which reads A. Please ask any specific questions you may have. All of our items are in hand. Be sure to keep all packaging and labeling in the event of any issue.
