Art pottery cider jug
Decorated with applied handle by Susan S. Frackelton, 1894-1909
Stoneware with gray glaze
Stoneware jug has a squat bulbous body with an applied scroll handle and a bulbous neck with a slightly pinched pouring lip. The jug has a gray glaze, and the handle and rim are painted blue with a leaf motif. A naturalistic apple-and-branch motif is painted in blue around the upper half of the body. There is a small banner outlined in blue with the inscription "Here's to Thee! Old Apple Tree!" painted at the base of the neck under the pouring lip. A shield-shaped medallion with three trees is painted in blue below the banner. On the underside, a maker's mark, "SF", is incised and painted blue.
Donated in 1958 by Frackelton's daughter, Gladys F. Seely.
