    Jug and handled jar, Richard Clinton Remmey, Philadelphia, 1859–1880s. Salt-glazed stoneware. H. 11" and 9". (Private collection; photo, Michael Murphy.) The jar holds 80 liquid ounces, or 5 quarts. Its mouth, formed by a collar with a flat lip, has an interior diameter of two inches. An internal lid or ledge seat suggests a formal lid, either ceramic or cork, was sealed to it with wax or tied to the collar.
