Handwritten note accompanies the piece: "This jug was made by Mr. Parker of Parker and Everett in 1890 at redware pottery on the east side of L.A. - San Fernando Road. The pottery was formerly owned by Mr. Hamilton and in recent years by the Standard pottery. It was torn down about 1914. This is the first experiment for the stoneware made in So. Ca. This jug was given to Mr. Obee by Mr. Parker just after the first burning for stoneware in 1890."
