THE YELLOWSTONE" Saloon Whiskey Jug Up for sale is this very cool little pint size jug, just 6 and 1/2 inches tall for "The Yellowstone" Saloon in San Francisco, California. Likely an advertising giveaway, quite scarce in any case. (It's pictured above as a member of this beautiful group. Each one is or soon will be up for sale here on eBay, and each one is being sold separately.) It's marked in a stenciled or stamped bullseye like design, "THE YELLOWSTONE, TWOMEY & MIHOLOVICH, 22 MONTGOMERY ST., S.F." There was a listing for "The Yellowstone Saloon & Grill in an old 1907 directory for San Francisco at this address, run by Mr. Twomey & Mr. Miholovich; but I haven't found out how long they were already in business for at that time. So this jug probably dates to the 1890's or very early 1900's, it appears. Measures about 6 and 1/2 inches tall, and 2 and 1/2 inches across at the base. Near perfect as made condition. 1/2 inch glaze skips, one near shoulder, and one near base, as made, and one tiny hard to see 1/8 or less glaze skip on lip, as made, all mentioned for accuracy.
We're offering this great rare early saloon jug with a starting bid of only $1.00 and no reserve! Free USPS Priority Mail shipping and insurance in the USA!
