W D Suggs Jug

Rebekah and I came across this W. D. Suggs jug, labeled as a "Mississippi whiskey jug" although I don't know if that is exactly right. Although the jug could have been used to store whiskey, I'm sure there were other more likely liquids. Water? Milk? Sweet tea!

It is unusual to see such a jug with an intact handle. First, there weren't that many of these jugs made, relative to the production of more popular churns which is what is primarily found in antique shops and private collections. And, the looped handle is intact which is very nice to find. The price for this jug? $375 Mr. Suggs would be astonished, I'm sure.
