Fostoria American Quart Jug

Quart Jug

Jugs & Pitchers

Item Number:  #454
Holding Capacity:  1 Quart
Production Dates:  1916-1973

For the most part, Fostoria Glass classified their larger pouring vessels as “Jugs”.  They did produce a smaller “Pitcher” – such as the Pint Cereal Pitcher.  It does appear; however, that the larger capacity items were always called Jugs.  I find the Quart Jug to be a nice size – not too big (easy to handle) and not too small.  It was never called a “Boudoir Pitcher” by Fostoria Glass; however, it was one of five items that was used in a Boudoir Set.  The Boudoir Set included this 1 Quart Jug, the Oblong Tray, a 7¼” Candle, a Tumbler, and a Match Box.

Remember, all of the Fostoria American items were finished by hand, so there will always be slight variances in size.  Based on my own evaluation of the Quart Jug, these are its approximate measurements:

  • Outside diameter from rim to rim – 5″
  • From bottom to top of lip – 7⅜”
  • Bottom base (or foot) is 3⅜” in diameter

The Quart Jug seems to be more elusive than many of the other Jugs in the 2056 line.  In fact, it was the last Jug I added to my collection.  It took me a while to find it – partly because people had misidentified it – and partly because their supply is somewhat limited.  Due to its size and easy handling, it proved to be a great item to use in the 5-Piece Boudoir Sets.
