This jug truly has character! The face is extraordinary! Most expressive. And makes me laugh every time I look at him. Came from a great estate auction held in the Midwest. The quality, attention to detail, and the fabulous glaze tones are fantastic. He is not perfect, and t is a tight crack to the handle which I photographed and another hairline underneath the handle. Both are old. T is slight crazing. T are no other apologies to be made.
Beautifully shaped. Large in size. Exceptionally glazed. Rich turquoise, reds, pinks, tawny browns, and mochas. Just a marvelous piece of pottery. Fun, cheerful, and full of whimsy. If you are a collector of face jugs or looking for a great piece of Majolica, this Sarreguemines piece would make a superb addition.
If you have any questions or wish additional pictures, I am happy to assist. I shall wrap your jug with extreme care and ship him home to you within one day.

Live Well! Laugh Often! cheers, z-
