North Carolina Yadkin Valley Whiskey Jug
Lot Details & Additional Photographs
Yadkin County, circa 1903-1909, loop handled form, its decorative blue glaze consists of two bands placed on either side of a tablet reading "Riverside / Manufacturing Co. / Shore, N. C. / Write for confidential price list."

13-1/2 in.

Between 1903 and 1908 North Carolina required distilleries to be located in incorporated towns, hence the now-defunct municipality of "Shore" was artificially born. Named after distiller I. C. Shore, this location hosted four whiskey operations until statewide prohibition shut them all down on January 1, 1909.

Flaw resembling an edge chip on mouth; a small chip on the base; very good condition.
