Rare Alkaline-Glazed Stoneware Devil Face Jug, Signed "Lanier Meaders", Cleveland, GA origin, circa 1970, ovoid jug with applied clay devil including elliptical eyes with elongated, open-centered pupils and incised eyelashes, curved eyebrows, well-sculpted nose, ears, twisted horns, and a smiling mouth with two pointed rock teeth. Surface covered in a mottled alkaline glaze with glossy-olive and matte-green frogskin areas. Underside incised "Lanier Meaders". An earlier work by Meaders, in a rare and desirable devil form, particularly notable for its oval-shaped pupils--much rarer than the typically-seen and less visually-appealing dots. Among the finest face vessels by Georgia's leading ceramic folk artist that we have ever offered. Excellent, essentially as-made condition. H 9 3/4".
