Root Beer Stoneware Bottles

Root Beer Stoneware bottles, Root Beer Stoneware Jugs or Root Beer Stoneware Pottery were used in the United States from 1890 to 1920. They varied in size and shape, were usually 8 oz. or quart size and consisted of a cork stopper.

These bottles occasionally referred to as pottery or clay bottles had a glass like finish or protective glaze and the name of the company selling the Root Beer extract. They were normally tan, white, gray or brown in color.

Printing was applied prior to the glazing and any embossing was impressed into the clay before baking.
