This is a pre-Prohibition porcelain whiskey jug. This old jug is 7 1/4 inches tall x about 5 inches in diameter, with a small finger loop handle on the back side. The handle is solid and secure. The jug is glazed with no crazing. There is a chip on the right top lip and some wear to the r and e in Meredith's.
We are not sure how much liquid it held, as we chose not to fill it.
Marked on the bottom is "K.T.& K. - CHINA" made by the Knowles, Taylor, Knowles China Company.

This company was known as Knowles until 1870, when John Taylor and the Knowles' son joined the company. It was then know as Knowles, Taylor, Knowles or K.T.&K for short.
