Ames Buggies Stoneware Advertising Mini Jug Set of 5 Extra Rare C-1890-1910 Condition: Minor as-made flaws, scratch version has a micro flea bite on mouth. Extra Rare Set of 5 Stoneware Advertising Mini Jugs with Kentucky history, and Kentucky connection. All of the set are double sided advertising..... The Flagship piece is the scratch version, which I catalog as an ultra-rare, perhaps five or less of this version are known to exist. The scratch jug showed up several years ago at an Indiana Flea Market. An Indiana picker bought the scratch mini, and offered it to me...I paid the picker $610.00 cash for the piece. Height ranges from 2-3/4" to 3-1/4" Tall Special Note: One mini jug refers to "buggies," and the next jug advertises transition to era of arrival of the automobile in America...that specific mini says "examine Ames vehicles." The car companies were pushing out buggy companies about 1901-1905! Wow, the buggy seller adapted as best possible. Obviously for the serious collector, or museum collection. Crossover Collector interest in: Stoneware, Advertising, Liquor, Kentucky, Buggy Mfg., Early Transportation, Bourbon Belt.
