Antique Weeks Pottery Stoneware Syrup Monkey Jug Akron

This cool old jug dates to between 1891 and 1910. Made by Frederick Weeks of Akron, Ohio. The base is 4-1/2" and height is about 5-1/4". One small glaze chip on the spout as seen. No bail handle. No cracks or repairs. The bottom is a little rubbed on the lettering like it was slid on a concrete floor. What looks like a crack in the bottom in the pictures is actually raised - it was a crack in their mold.

Bottom reads :
