An attractive cobalt-scripted stoneware jug for G.W. Hazeltine of 212 Commercial Street, Boston. This is a 2-gallon jug manufactured by Edmands & Co. of Charlestown Massachusetts.

There is a G.W. Hazeltine liquor merchant listed at 212 Commercial Street in the 1861 Boston Almanac. Commercial Street was primarily comprised of businesses serving the shipping industry. It's likely this jug of liquor was picked up by a Nova Scotia sailor while in port in Boston sometime in the 1860's.
