Joe Jug Johnson Laurens South Carolina 4 Gallon Churn
- Source: eBay
Beautiful Laurens County Joe "Jug" Johnson 4 gallon churn. This is a nice one in near perfect condition. It is 16" tall x 7 1/2" across the top and 8 1/2" across the bottom. Has the famous blue band and looks to be three colors total. It has a few small nicks to the rim that are all less than 1/4" and NO CRACKS or MAJOR DAMAGE and NO REPAIRS. This churn is from the same Fountain Inn, SC estate as the 2 gallon pitcher I have listed and this one has been in the family since it was purchased from Mr. Johnson. It weighs 14 pounds. Also has the original dasher but it has come apart and will need to be fixed. A churn similar to this one sold at a local auction about 1 month ago and it brought $400.00 and I am told it was cracked. This is the best one I have ever seen. Great piece of pottery from one of the best potters this state has ever known.Local pickup can be arranged but only after full payment has been recieved. Thanks for looking at this auction.
