Fostoria Glass classified their larger pouring vessels as “Jugs”. They did; however, produce a smaller “Pitcher” – such as the Pint Cereal Pitcher. This ½ Gallon Jug is very substantial in size, and hefty in weight. You would be well advised to carry this vessel with two hands, supporting it mainly from the bottom. It has a nice pouring lip, and a solid and smooth handle – which starts at the very top of the Jug. It is one of my favorite beverage items, and you will often find it on our table serving iced tea, lemonade, and other assorted beverages.
The ½ Gallon Jug enjoyed a long life, and is still a popular item today. If you are interested in purchasing similar Jugs and/or Pitchers in the American line, please click the following sponsored link for available Jugs on eBay.
