Picked this up, from the local car boot today - All it says is E. Sargent. Anyone got any idea about location or if it is a common one.

Is very heavy and quite crudely made and measures 9.5" high with a crude blue lip and blue highlights around the name.

Any help greatly appreciated

Thanks for the quick reply - was it beer / porter as it seems a bit too large and heavy

Soda or beer types. Many held root beer. A lot on US eBay where they dont seem to attract a lot of money. Odd that they are so under valued when compared to glass. Well documented in " American Stoneware Bottles . A History and Study " by David Graci. This guide lists " E. Sargent and Dresser 1853 " but not the single name.

One of the problems of these is they are so very heavy - cost a fortune to post.

They also tend to be relarively plain compared to the wide mouthed jars of the period which can feature great pictorial sgraffito (hand inscribed into the clay) decorations which are then picked out in the cobalt blue oxide.

Thanks for all the feedback - definitely American and from the 1860s period. As it is not local I will be selling. Thanks again
