Redware water cooler is vase shaped. It has a spout at the bottom that is broken. There is a single handle on one side. The neck is decorated with ten raised, applied hearts. There is one applied heart below the handle and another on the opposite side. There are six incised lines between the bottom of the handle and the lip of the cooler. The outside and inside of the cooler are covered in brown glaze and the bottom has some glaze drips. The lid has chipped glaze and scoring along the rim. A bulb-shaped finial that is open at the top has been broken off of the lid. The Ohio Historical Society purchased this water cooler from John Ramsey of Massillon, Ohio, in 1938.
