I tried to search Crewsk but no luck. Do you have an antique dealer around and maybe they know. I have a similar one but no markings on the bottom of mine. Mine has a cork in the spout. I keep mine on top of the refrigerator with other decorative items. I picked mine up in MI when visiting my brothers about 3 years ago at a thrift store we just happened to stumble into.

Uncle Bob, I have no idea, I'm guessing that it's about 2 quarts.

I was wrong about the wording on the bottom of the jug, it says Price T Bristol. I was looking at it in very poor light, sorry!

Miss Crewsk..

Ah haa! Now that takes us to another level of research. I "think" these folks made pottery up until 1940. So your jug is at least that old. (67 years)

Would you mind filling it with water and pouring it out to measure?? It could prove valuable.
