Husting Milwaukee Wis.

E.L. Husting used two styles of stamps and always had a cobalt band just below the blob. This example still has the original Putnam cork holder in place. Most Wisconsin clay bottles used Putnam cork holders but most lost them over the years when the neck wire rusted off. The stamp on this variety lacks the WIS. Both varieties are not rare. They seem to have used similar numbers of both. They are late by stoneware bottle standards, probably made in the 1880's by Hermann and used past the turn of the century.
