This is a handmade clay jug that dates back to the latter part of the 1800’s and is in excellent condition and there are no cracks. The jug is heavy and sturdy with a small handle and shows the beautiful imperfections in the most glorious way! Stamped on the front of the bottle is a seal that has slightly faded and reads:

NASSAU
SELTER

History: The water originated at Selter’s Spring in Niderselters, Germany, a naturally carbonated spring. According to Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary (10th ed.), the word, seltzer, is derived from Niderselters. The spring was the best-known in Germany, and waters were exported worldwide during the 18th and 19th centuries. The ceramic bottles were manufactured in the Westerwald Mountains, known as the “jug baking land/district.” Under the handle of each bottle is stamped the first initial of the jugmaker’s location and the person’s individual number. The taller, cylindrical bottles date from about 1850. (from - http://www.antique-bottles.net/forum/m-497217/mpage-1/key-/tm.htm#497251)


Jug measures about 11 ½” Tall.
