John Arnold and Sons Wickwar 884 crock ale beer jug
|| for item safn-4168
Amazing rare old crock stoneware ale bottle or jug circa 1912. Measures 10 1/2" tall and measures 8 5/8" across the base. John Arnold & Sons Wickwar 884 printed underglaze. This meaning it was from the John Arnold & Sons High Street Brewery in Wickwar. Appears to be about a 2 quart size. Also stamped in an oval but it is filled partially with glaze and I can't tell what it says. I am not familiar with old brewerania bottles and crockery so you collectors will have a better idea than me. Small chip on the neck portion. Pretty nice condition, no cracks or other noteable's. Bottom view shows common imperfections of the crockery.
