This jug is very choice for two reasons: first, it has a polychromed side with a hand painted ship and, second, not one but both sides feature desirable transfers. Note that the cartouche under the spout has the added name "Mary Gardner". It was very typical that these jugs were personalized to be brought home as gifts for wives, friends, business acquaintances, etc. We date it to circa 1792 when KY became the 15th state because of the 15 stars in the flag. It is in excellent original condition with invisible professional repair to several minor hairlines.
