This is a rare whiskey stoneware jug made by the Ravarino Freschi Company in Staunton, Illinois, 1900. The Ravarino Freschi Company became nationally known for their pasta products sold under the R&F Company name. Prior to the founders relocation to St. Louis, MO to start their business, they owned a small general store in Staunton, IL about 40 miles from downtown St. Louis. This general store closed around 1900, the same time they started their pasta business. The R&F company was later bought out by the American Italian Pasta Company based in Kansas City, MO.
