This marked Edgefield jar with a pale green glaze is approximately 10 ½" tall, 29" in circumference, 6" across the lip, and 6 ½" across the base. The inverted V is stamped just above the base (See photos). According to The McKissick Museum's catalog CROSSROADS OF CLAY, letters are often stamped near the base of Pottersville pieces (p. 54). Cinda Baldwin, in GREAT AND NOBLE JAR, p. 55., notes that the inverted v, in addition to other marks, was sometimes used at the Trapp-Chandler factory, but usually at or just below the rim. The jar has several chips to the rim and handles, and two hairlines running from the lip. One crack runs from the lip down and around the middle. Two holes are drilled in the base (See photos).
