This is a great old primitive shoulder jug form New York . The front has the words in black:
Aug. Baetzhold and Sons
567-571 Michigan St .
Buffalo , NY

The Baetzhold's were dealers in and importers of fine wines and spirits. The founder of the firm was August Baetzhold who settled in Buffalo , started a small liquor store on Main Street in 1863 then moved to a larger facility in the building at 346 Ellicott Street . But this space soon became too small so in 1872 he bought the Odd Fellows Hall at 567 - 571 Michigan Street , wich he remodeled.
The jug is in very good shape. It measures 11 1/2" tall and 6 3/4" accross.
