Stoneware Crock Whiskey Jug, Large Mouth, Primitive.

 

The early use of stoneware jugs in American in general and the western frontier in particular dates back to the end of the eighteenth century when their production began in the East.

Stoneware jugs also referred to as liquor crocks or jugs, whiskey jugs, and shoulder jugs, predate the mason jars and other modern containers that replaced them. While they obviously weren’t used exclusively by any means for the consumption of “spirits”, the image of a mountain man, pioneer, or other early frontier inhabitant taking a drink from a stoneware shoulder jug is certainly an American cliché, if not icon.
