Toothy Small Folk Art Pottery Face Jugs - A Pair

Regular price $80.00

I'm not sure about the origins of this pair of little face jugs, which I purchased from a dealer at a flea market who said they had come from an estate he had just cleaned out in Maine (and from which he also had some old crocks and 19th century photographs.) They may not be very old, but I really love how rough they are, pretty crudely thrown and sort of loosely slathered with blue-green glaze here and there. One features faces on both sides--one toothy, the other close lipped, and with deep laugh and forehead lines. The other features a sculpted nose, pronounced nostrils, and deeply outlined eyes, one of which, appears to be staring you down!

These are in great condition, no chips or cracks. The double faced jug measures 4" tall x 3 3/4" across with handle, 3" deep. Single faced jug: 4 1/4" tall x 4 1/8" wide x 3 1/2" deep. Images document one jug, then the other, in order. I'd like to sell these as a pair to keep them together, but if you are interested in just one, please let me know.
