S. Horkheimer and Son Wheeling WV 4 Gallon Double Handled Merchant Jug

Circa 1880s: Double handled West Virginia merchant jugs are rare and desirable, and this spectacular S. Horkheimer and Son four gallon jug from Wheeling will put a smile on even the most advanced Pennsylvania and West Virginia stoneware collector's face. Simon Horkheimer and his son Myer ran a general store together in Wheeling in the 1880s until Simon's death in 1889. This 18" tall jug features both stencil and freehand decoration with a very unusual flower at the top center of the exuberantly decorated field. Condition is excellent with one minor nick on the bottom of the jug's lip and a short factory firing fissure under one of the handles. This jug is most likely attributed to Greensboro, Pennsylvania, potters Hamilton and Jones. This is a hard to find merchant stamp on a scarce form in superb conditon, and we are sure this will be a centerpiece in its new owner's collection.
