Masonic Whiskey Jug 

 Paducah, Kentucky

           

This one gallon "On The Square" whiskey jug is a stoneware type crock which held six year old whiskey produced by Paducah Distilleries Co. incorporated of Paducah Kentucky.  As a rule... alcohol use is not permitted in a Blue Lodge and as in this case, the square and compasses have been exploited commercially which is also in violation of Masonic Law.  This didn't hurt its collectibility as it recently sold at auction on eBay  for over $550.00

A special "Thanks" to Brother Steve Kapp (kalbo on eBay) for submitting the pictures and description of his wonderful jug.  Steve is a Master Mason and affiliated with the below Masonic bodies:

Leonard Wood Lodge No. 105, Angeles City, Philippines
Cavite York Rite, Cavite, Philippines
Okinawa Scottish Rite, Okinawa, Japan  (Valley of Okinawa and Guam) Aloha Temple, Honolulu, Hawaii
