Dawson Springs KY City of Health Mug. Signed and Dated 1927. Very good condition. Early 1900's Dawson Springs Ky Mineral Water Quack Cure •stoneware Mug
Up for sale is a rare antique original early 1900's era: THE FAMOUS DAWSON SPRINGS, KY. STONEWARE MINERAL WATER MUG. This neat advertising souvenir mug was quality made of thick ornate glazed pottery with a very detailed transfer. Begun in 1893, the Mineral Springs water was highly prized as a quack cure-all ...Bright's Disease, Liver and Gall Bladder, Rheumatism, Heart Trouble, Constipation and Dropsy etc. were just a few of the ailments that plagued the people who came here hoping to find relief...plus it was also shipped all over the USA in glass bottles. It is also unusual in that the owner's name and year is on the reverse--possibly an additional expense when purchasing the mug. Would be a great display piece for your vintage Mineral Water/Kentucky pottery/stoneware Mug collection.
CONDITION: Excellent used with only light wear/etc. The Name on the rear side has some wear/etc. ABSOLUTELY NO hairlines, chips or cracks. Please closely examine photos for additional details.
