In this auction we have a School of the Ozarks Pottery hand made jug, with a brown color and raised letter "S of O" vertically.. This jug is from the Ann Gutschke Jug Collection. Ann was a collector and displayed her pottery collection from 1933 to 1983. The pottery in her collection dates back to 1848. I purchased the complete collection in the mid 1980's just prior to her death. T were 449 pieces in this collection. She kept a log of all her pottery, but unfortunately she only noted what "she" needed to remember, and some of the pieces are hard to date. We do know that this rare piece of pottery.

This S of O Pottery is about 4 1/2" tall and around 3 1/8" in diameter at the widest point. It is in good condition, t is a chip in the glaze at the top brim. Not easily noticed.

Since we do know the history and can provide good provenance, we will send to you, along with this jug. a letter stating the assigned number in the log book, the fact that this S of O pottery jug came from and was part of Ann Gutschke original collection.

Ann stopped displaying the pottery collection in 1983, and up until recently it has all been in storage. We have selected a small portion of her pottery collection to keep, and will be selling the remainder over the next few months.
