Monumental Seven-Gallon Double-Handled Jug with Alkaline Glaze, Crawford County, GA origin, circa 1845, large-sized, highly-ovoid jug with squared spout and ribbed strap handles, the surface covered in an attractive, mottled alkaline glaze. This jug was produced during an early period of Crawford County, GA stoneware production, from which few pieces of this quality have survived. An exceptional work in terms of size, form, and glaze. Literature: A nearly-identical jug by the same hand is used as a full-page frontispiece in John Burrison's book, Brothers in Clay: The Story of Georgia Folk Pottery. Excellent condition with some minor base chips. H 17 3/4".
