Moonshine Jug
[Return to Topics]

I'm in the market for a couple of items - one being a real authentic XXX Moonshine Jug with original cork if possible, and the other instructions on how to make a paper towel holder out of these wrought iron tong looking contraptions that I don't know what are, but have seen in someone's house from long ago. Any ideas about what it might have been, and where I might buy one?

DW, you would want that jug full, wouldn't you?
As for ice tongs, we still have ice houses down here in South Florida and they use tongs. They use 300 lb blocks of ice and blow it into snow and top ice produce going to points north on semi trucks.

Muddy, it's 12:40 am here right now, and I'm wide awake. I've got 7 little girls here for my daughter's birthday sleep over, and I could use a snoot-full right about now, so yep, fill her up!

DW, it sounds to me like you aren't the one needing a shot! But the little girls do, to quite them down and put them to sleep. but on the other hand it's like what they say about dope that they give you in the hospital for pain, it doesn't kill the pain, it just makes you where you don't give a darn about the pain!!!! So maybe a shot or two of "shine" in you wouldn't quite the girls down, but just make you where you don't give a darn!!!!

Dreamweaver.......real ice tongs and logging tongs would crush your little ol' roll of paper towels.

Yes, I have seen papertowel roll holders that are patterned after ice tongs. I thought they were neat but my ex-wife didn't. But I don't know where to buy 'em........Dell (WA)

Ice tongs used by Iceman in days gone by to carry blocks of ice,log tongs used with chain to drag/lift logs,log carrier tongs used to carry long logs(multiple sets w/2-4 men on ea set)

Believe most could still be purchased new(Big$)or check antique stores and E-bay.By the way Ebay has some moonshine jugs listed also.
