Answer: Tom, I have now viewed the front of your Siegel Cooper & Company jug. It is indeed salt glazed and very rare. It books between $1300 & $1500. I would normally say that the book price in today’s market is a little high, but because your jug is so rare, I would stay on the high end of the book value. Very nice piece. Al Kohlman
