Item Details
Description
Rare Albany-Slip-Glazed Stoneware Face Jug with China Teeth, attributed to Guy Daugherty, Bethune, Kershaw County, South Carolina, circa 1950, small-sized, wheel-thrown jug with flared spout and applied strap handle, decorated with an applied clay face with oval eyes, incised eyebrows, pinched cheeks, and open mouth bearing china teeth. Surface covered in a brown Albany slip glaze. Daugherty is credited as one of the last Southern potters with 19th century training to produce ware in the modern era. According to Baldwin's Great and Noble Jar, a 1955 article in the State Magazine described Daugherty as "one of the few remaining 'old time' potters in the entire Southeast. . . who will be 77 years young on his next birthday [and that he] made his first piece of saleable pottery in 1888 when he was only ten years old" (Baldwin, p. 141). One of a small number of face jugs made by Daugherty known. Literature: For more information, see Baldwin, Great and Noble Jar, p. 141. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, recently discovered in New York State. Excellent, essentially as-made condition. H 3 3/4".
