09 Clark & Clark Stoneware Jug

One gallon, salt glazed, stoneware jug.  The origin of this rare jug is clearly stenciled on the front in cobalt blue lettering: FROM THE / LABORATORIES OF / DRS. CLARK & CLARK / THE VETERINARIANS / CANISTOTA, SO. DAK.  Information on these veterinarians can be found in the September 2012 VCR newsletter. They were a father and son team.  The son, Winfield Clark was born in 1898 in Canistota, population about 300.  This jug is c1920 and probably contained a horse liniment or some other horse medicine.  11”x 6 ½”.  The only damage is a shallow, flat chip to the bottom edge.  This is the second example to ever be recorded at auction.  The first was in the Rothman collection sold in 2014.
