The merger of seven stoneware pottery companies in 1906 formed the Western Stoneware Company of Monmouth Illinois. The seven companies that formed the merger were The Monmouth Pottery Company, Weir Pottery Company, Macomb Stoneware Company, Macomb Pottery Company, D. Culbertson Stoneware Company, Clinton Stoneware Company, and Fort Dodge Stoneware.

Making this merger a very fruitful one for all concerned was the fact that each company brought a pottery specialty to the new company. This gave the Western Stoneware Company an impressive range of design styles.

The range of products produced by The Western Stoneware Company included basic utilitarian stoneware vessels such as bowls, butter churns and crocks as well as more decorative quality pieces such as lamps, planters and artistic pieces.

The distinctive feature of the Western Stoneware crocks is the blue stamped company logo featuring a maple leaf which remained fairly consistent over the years with only slight variations made.

The Western Stoneware Company jugs and crocks are part of a larger range of jugs that can be found for sale elsewhere on the site. For other fine and unusual jugs including whiskey and moonshine jugs and crocks of all sizes and condition take a look at the stoneware jugs page or head over to the page featuring McCormick Platte Valley whiskey jugs, Glenmore Whiskey Jugs and Henry McKenna Whiskey Jugs.

Finding items to use as decorative touches in the home can be difficult, particularly if you aren’t sure exactly what the final effect will look like. Using a Stoneware whiskey jug is an imaginative way to add a rustic return to a previous time to the room. Not only do these jugs provide interest and charm they can be used as a vessel to hold liquids.

Placing a range of stoneware whiskey jugs of differing sizes on the kitchen bench as a display feature is sure to add a great deal of character to the room. The type of jugs that many people consider to be the typical looking stoneware whiskey jugs are properly described as two-toned stoneware featuring a slip top and glazed bottom.

Take some care when buying these old-style jugs that they are in good condition and that there are no cracks in the surface. A jug that is in fine or better condition will provide a valuable piece that will be more than a decorative item.

There is a tremendous amount of history behind the manufacture and use of old stoneware whiskey jugs from the early storage days to their use in the manufacture of illicit moonshine during prohibition. The early 20th century whiskey jugs provide some of the most collectible jugs available and they make terrific decorative features for placement around the kitchen or dining room or in use as water jugs.

Collectors of stoneware should not be able to go past some of the gorgeous old jugs that can be picked up for very reasonable prices. Not only will they look good in your home but the process of picking up pottery whiskey jugs can also provide you with some very interesting insights into the history of the whiskey industry in the country.

The early stoneware whiskey jugs were not actually used for storing or transporting whiskey. In fact, they were used as promotional tools as a means of marketing the products. Free promotional whiskey jugs were used to serve water as a mixer and the advertising that was placed on the side meant that these jugs became the decorative whiskey jugs that are now very popular decorative items.

Although there are quite a lot of different types of whiskey jugs produced by some of the more important pottery manufacturers, the practice of collecting them did not really take off until more recent times. It is now recognised that decorating with old whiskey jugs, particularly those that have been given an attractive finish with either a distinctive or colourful design, is a great way of adding to the look of an area.

Certain types of jugs may be very distinctive and could be easily spotted as a more valuable jug, something that other people might overlook. As a quick example it is very likely that if you spot a white antique whiskey jug with blue writing it could be a Henry McKenna whiskey jug. As far as antique whiskey jugs go these jugs do not necessarily cost a great deal of money but their decorative and historical value is quite strong.

An interesting variation on what might be considered to be the classical stoneware whiskey jug is a jug that is known either as a horseshoe stoneware jug or a Stiles Jug. You can read more about these types of jugs on our Horseshoe Stoneware Jug page.

Notable and Collectable Whiskey Jugs

There are many ways to go about collecting whiskey jugs and, ultimately, it is going to be up to your personal preferences for what you feel is pleasing to the eye or important. Described below are a few different variations of the stoneware whiskey jug, some of them are specific to a particular manufacturer and others are more descriptive of a whiskey jug style.

Beehive Style Whiskey Jug

The beehive jug is an early stoneware design that was used by a number of pottery companies to provide substantial liquid storage. It is probably more common to find these jugs in 3 gallon, 4 gallon and 5 gallon sizes although they were also regularly made in gallon sizes too. The beehive jugs were usually hand turned and this meant that it is quite common to see a slight variance in size from one to the other.

The beehive jug is a solid looking stoneware jug that provided a durable container that also kept its contents nice and cool for long periods of time. They were often given a salt glaze or a dark brown glaze with the occasional jug provided with a more decorative finish of some kind of painted feature.

Beehive jugs make extremely attractive decorative vessels for placement in places such as a fireplace mantel, the windowsill or as a feature placed on the floor, perhaps with a dried flower arrangement coming out of the top. Even if they are left unadorned they can look very impressive.

An example of a beehive jug that has become very popular with collectors is the Red Wing jug. Red Wing beehive jugs were available in sets of three different sizes – three, four and five gallon linked together by the design that was used on the front. We have created a separate post that provides more information about Red Wing Stoneware Jugs.

RCP Co Akron Ohio Stoneware Jugs

The jugs that you might see marked as RCP Co. Akron Ohio were made by Robinson Clay Products Co. in the early 1900s. Some of the jugs made by RCP Co. have a distinctive blue and white band around the pale salt glazed body of the jug. Others feature the more usual bi-tone dark brown glazed top and white body that is more synonymous with a whiskey jug. The markings of these jugs are stamped on the bottom identifying them as from R.C.P. Co. Some of these jugs are the types of old collectible jugs that are fascinating to research because much of it will involve the development and history of the company itself.

Detrick Distilling Stoneware Jugs

There are some very interesting whiskey jugs that originated from the Detrick Distilling Co. The company was first operated as a milling company from 1884 before turning to the business of distilling the grain and selling it as liquor. The company became known as the Detrick Milling and Distilling Company and operated until 1919 out of Tippecanoe City, Ohio.

There are still a sizable number of Detrick whiskey jugs in circulation today and the most famous are the 4-1/2” stoneware motto jugs that feature a common toast or slogan emblazoned on the side. An example of what these small jugs look like is pictured over there on the right. There are twelve of these mini whiskey jugs featuring the following mottos:

"As I go up the hill of prosperity, may I never meet a friend."
"Eat, drink and be merry."
"While we live, let's live."
"May fortune ever smile on you."
"To err is human, to forgive divine."
"There's always more from where I came."
"I am always welcome wherever I go."
"A friend in need is a friend indeed."
"When you see me you will always smile."
"If you try me once you will try me again."
"Drink weary Pilgrim, for tomorrow you may die."
"Rye on Toast."

The following is a selection of the various different types of whiskey jug manufacturers that you may want to consider when buying a stoneware jug: Ohio stoneware whiskey jugs, Glenmore whiskey jugs, McCormick Platte Valley whiskey jugs, Henry McKenna whiskey jugs, The Western Company crocks and jugs.

Alternatively you might be looking for a stoneware jug in a specific size. The most common sizes found include 1 gallon jugs, 2 gallon jugs, 3 gallon jugs, 4 gallon jugs and 5 gallon jugs.

Choose A Moonshine Jug

Take a look at the range of moonshine jugs for sale below. These jugs are also known as stoneware whiskey jugs or as a gallon whiskey jug.

A moonshine jug is more than simply an attractive looking piece that may be placed for decorative purpose in the room. It is also a very useful storage container that may be used for storing oil, vinegar or wine in the kitchen for cooking purposes.

These large ceramic jugs that were used to hold liquor, usually a gallon, have become synonymous with the practice of moonshining. In other words, the illegal production and sale of whiskey during the prohibition years. One of the main reasons why a moonshine jug was used was that you couldn’t see what the jug contained, so the contents had a better chance of going undetected. The problem was, everyone knew exactly what the brown and white pottery jugs were used for and what they contained.

These days these moonshine jugs have become highly collectible items, not only for their historical relevance but also the fact that they remain very handy storage devices. They can be placed into an older-style kitchen and provide atmosphere through the old-style appeal and character that it brings to the room. There are many different sizes of vintage moonshine whiskey jugs available so they can be either placed high up on a shelf or, for the larger ones, lower down on the floor or on a small table.

The shape and dimensions of these jugs have become popular icons and have become used in the home in a number of different ways. One of the more popular versions of these jugs are the smaller replicas that have been adapted as salt and pepper shakers.

These jugs have also been popularly used to celebrate special occasions and notable events with the exterior of the jug the perfect place to display logos and emblems. Not only does this make them great for storing special beverages it also turns them into collectable items that will look great on display.
