Lithographic advertisement drawn on stone in 1847:

Example of a casting from Savery & Co:

"6G" is probably a casting designation or model # since the example above uses the letter "H". In addition, this foundry was established well after the US formalized US customary units in 1832 so "6G" does not correlate with gallons given that it holds less than 6 US gallons.
