Watson Bros, Guelph Miniature Jug

Lot 0173 Details

Description
Debossed, "Compliments of Watson Bros. Guelph, Ont". 3.5 x 2" (diam). This extremely rare miniature jug, standing only 3 1/2" high by 2" wide at the base, was produced at the Brantford pottery during W.E. Welding's tenure (1873-1894). A very fine hairline crack travels part way around the handle where it meets the mouth of the jug. Another tiny hairline exists at the base of the handle. Please note that these are not through cracks and as such, there isn't any evidence that the handle has ever been separated from the jug. A small area of glaze crazing, which likely would have occured in the kiln during the firing process, exists at the back of the jug. A 1/4 gallon jug from this merchant is pictured on page 71 of "Jugs & Crocks of the Guelph Merchants" by Joyce Blyth.
