The work of brothers Wallace and Cornwall Kirkpatrick in Anna, Illinois--sold under their moniker, "Anna Pottery"--is essentially unparalleled in American stoneware. Visionaries who created masterpieces of American folk art, the Kirkpatricks are famous for wild creations that often comment on the perceived dangers of alcohol consumption--their ware commonly used as a container for whiskey, gin, and other spirits. Their pig flasks and snake jugs are chief examples of these vessels, and are the forms for which the brothers are probably most well known. We hold the World Auction Record for one of their pig bottles, a very famous and beloved American stoneware form.
