Very Rare Alkaline-Glazed Southern Jug with Figure of a Smoking Man and Inscription "Whiskey Jug," probably Catawba Valley, NC, late 19th century, straight-sided jug with applied strap handle and brown Albany slip glaze, decorated in a darker slip with a folky design of a man wearing a hat and smoking a cigar. In addition, the slip inscription "Whiskey Jug" is written around the shoulder area of the jug. A stick figure decorates the reverse under the handle. With the exception of Edgefield, SC, pottery, slip-decorated designs on Southern stoneware such as this are considered quite rare. A highly unusual example of Southern folk art pottery. Mint condition. H 11 1/2".
