Commemorative Jug

Commemorative Jug Depicting the Landing of Columbus in America, attributed to the White Pottery Company, Utica, New York, ca. 1875-1885.  Stoneware pottery with a polychrome glaze.  The five gallon jug or cooler probably had a cover and is missing the spout.  The incised decoration is well executed with meandering foliage on the verso.  In celebration of the Centennial year many companies produced symbolic works of art depicting key  moments in the country’s history to demonstrate their patriotism.  The arrival of Columbus in America was one such moment.
