I would like help in identification of this family treasure.Appears to be molded pressed glass. Top is part of the vessel and is not removable. Only opening is the spout. Stands about 6 inches in height. Very heavy clear glass.

    Your "rum jug" was made by the United States Glass Company in the late 1800s. The pattern is Massachusetts, and they made this piece in two different sizes. At the time, the USGCo made a series of patterns which they named after states. Collectors refer to these as the "states series." Since one cannot wash out this vessel, it is doubtful that these were ever used for rum or any other liquid. Most likely just a novelty piece of bric-a-brac for the late Victorian parlor.
