In early 20th century Louisville not all empty liquor jugs became trash. Some became tools in the hands and lips of skilled musicians. Another unique product emerged– Jug band music.
In tribute to those creative and enterprising descendants of slaves, Louisville Stoneware hand-fashioned 100 Limited Edition miniature replicas of those old gallon whiskey jugs preferred by jug band musicians. They are “piggy banks.”
Each jug is unique, with a value-enhancing number. Three great Jubilee volunteers–Mike Power (Jug #1), David Ross Stevens (#100) and Michael Reidy (#75)–received jugs for their dedication.
Jugs are available at $50.00
