g. jones rhode island quart mug
i am pleased to offer this uncommon quart mug made by gershom jones of providence between 1774 and 1809. the mug has the worn rampant lion gershrom jones touch mark (l 341) struck inside on the bottom. william billing also made identical quarts in providence from 1791 to 1806 but did not use a similar touch mark. the mug stands 5 13/16" tall, has a 4" top diameter and a 4 3/4" bottom diameter. the solid strap style handle was cast directly to the body, leaving molten linen marks inside. the mug is in very good condition.
