Edgefield So. Carolina Pottery Churn 3 Slash Marks

This large, attractive, and very heavy lug-handled light-colored yellow-green Edgefield churn is marked with three slashes to the shoulder (See Cinda Baldwin's GREAT AND NOBLE JAR, pp. 40, 41, and 78, in reference to slave potters' use of the slash mark). The piece looks double-dipped, with glaze runs from the top midway down the side, and is freckled with iron spots over the body. It has a lid ledge (i.e., is seated for a lid), and its dimensions are 14 1/2" tall, 32" in circumference, 7 " across the lip, and 8" across the base. The churn has several cracks which spidered from an inpact on one side, the most noticeable running from side-to-side across one side of the piece. Another crack runs from under the base up the side a few inches. T is damage to the lip and chips to the handles, and some pop-outs in the glaze. (See photos.) Beautiful color. Very nice for display.
