P. DUROSS - Philadelphia

 

 

 

 

 

Circa 1850-1855 P. DUROSS - Philadelphia Slug Plate Squat

FDug in 2021 in a Philly privy, this pontiled squat is in really nice shape. It has 3 lines of embossing within the rectangular slug. The bottom is iron pontiled, not very robust but clear. It has applied double taper top.

Embossed: P. DUROSS / 181 CATHN ST / PHILA

Height: 7 1/2" 
Color: deep teal green

Condition: perfect structurally with no chips, dings, bruises, cracks or collar nicks. It was only rinsed out so it retains some patchy haze and spotty light wear. I like the natural patina but it could be polish cleaned to near mint if desired.

Reference Number:  Y418

Price: $175
