Miniature Stoneware Jug
Miniature Stoneware JugCould this S.J. Duval be of our clan? This miniature stoneware jug has an under-glaze bluish gray mark "COMPLIMENTS OF S.J. DUVAL 316 BONHAM ST". Although it has an address of 316 Bonham St. it does not have a city listed. Several of these have surfaced in Texas and although it could be from any town with a Bonham St. It has been suggested that it is from Fort Worth, Texas. It would date from around 1900 until 1920 and given away as a complimentary sample of, no doubt, liquor. It measures 3 inches high and is 2 inches in diameter at the widest point. There is a brown glaze on the neck and shoulder.
