TALL FOLK ART DOUBLE SPOUT ROOSTER JUG W/ DETAILED FACE

CAROLINA POTTER JACK MANESS

This is probably one of the most unusual jugs I have ever run across! It is a tall jug, 11 1/2 inches from bottom to tip of tail and beak to tail is 9 1/2 inches. The tail stopper is 5 1/2 inches, while the head is 3 3/4 inches. The jug is a light chocolatey brown with marvelous runs from the spouts. The head spout is ringed by short, dark neck feathers with light highlights as chickens (or roosters, which is it?) are. The wings are etched into the jar and are glazed in a darker glaze. The handle fits comfortably in the hand.

The stoppers are VERY detailed. The head has a red comb and wattle, black eyes, and a goldish beak. the long, full tail has precisely etched feathers which are tipped in a many colored glaze. When placed in the spouts, the bird is complete. It is absolutely beautiful!! You won't see anothe like this on ebay.

The piece is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. It is signed on the bottom by the artist.
