Remmey, Philadelphia, PA, circa 1875, cylindrical jug with tooled and pinched pouring spout, the front impressed with cobalt-highlighted advertising "JOHN HOPKINS & CO. / IMPORTERS & DEALERS IN / CHINA GLASS & QUEENSWARE / 812 MARKET ST. / PHILADELPHIA." Impressed advertising surrounded by cobalt swags and dots, and underscored with the initials "J.C.P.," possibly the decorator's initials.
