Wow love that jug, not seen one with Shelbyvill on before, but where is the "e" ? Do you know the history behind this ? When did Gunter operate their business from Shelbyville ? Very interesting find, I can't wait to learn more about it

The Gunters are from Shelbyville. The scratch jug that I have is from the Tip top Saloon which was in Shelbyville. As for the missing E think it is a misprint. Have seen a couple others with the E missing.

I think there is a thread on here somewhere about the Gunter's, but not sure.

I know I have written & posted pictures of some other Gunter items, but don't know where.

 

Nice jug & shot glass!!!

 

Get it off that stump before it falls!  :)

I just checked JeePee's website and although they were from Shelbyville it only mentions them running the liquor businesses from Nashville (that we all know) but also in Evansville, Indiana

I wonder when they operated in Shelbyville, the jug looks like it had "Shelbyvill, Tenn" added at a separate time to the Gunter stencil so maybe they had them made and printed while between premises then just added the location later.

I'll have a search later when I'm on the PC Mike, I'm sure there's more info on here, I find stuff like this fascinating.

Thanks Tomek, you beat me to it  ;)

 

here is the pic we needed, it shows jugs with both "shelbyvill" and "shelbyville" in fact if I'm not mistaken this jug that you have Paul is the exact same jug shown 4th from the left  ;)
