These old jugs were in my basement filled with "homemade wine"..made by our Grandfather who passed away in 1940's. We moved into the house in 1989 ..so the wine was past its prime but the bottles are just wonderful old things. I am not sure what they were used for originally.

    I had never looked before but here is the info: the short round one reads :meyers and company Dist's pure Fulton Whiskey Pat AP Covington KY U.S.A. About 9" tall.
    The one with the handle reads: The Nivison Weiskopf Co Cin. O around the bottom edge of the jug and has 46 on the bottom. About 11" tall.
    The smaller (2) has no markings and (1) has the word "ROOT" I think..bad vision. these are identical jugs but with slight variance of color on the one "Root". about 10" tall.
