LANIER MEADERS -Vintage Appalachian Southern- FACE JUG:
$995

Meaders Pottery is world-reknowned for its simplicity and reflection of an era of Southern history. Lanier Meaders was one of the most popular potters, producing utilitarian and decorative pieces.

This piece, known as a face jug, was bought from Lanier himself in the late 70s or very early 80s. It is one of his early face jugs and signed on the bottom as shown. The glaze is dark and the piece is in pristine condition. It measures 9 1/2 inches tall. This is an excellent sample of Lanier'sveryearly work and the simple style inwhichhis face jugs began. Please see the pictures for more detail and/ or email with any questions.

The only marksof noteare those that happened during turning or firing, and thus are considered inherent to the piece and not defects in any way. There is a tiny place on the lower back side of the piece where a tiny stone in the clay caused a small pock mark.There is also atiny crack in the outer layer ofclay (does not go all the way through) under the cheek areathathappened as Lanier pushed in to make thecheek bone. It is under the glaze.A unique feature are the pierced ears this piece has.

Insurance will be required on this purchase and runs no more than $3-$5 depending on purchase price. Shipping is based on zip code. Please contact me with any questions. Thanks for looking!

After speaking withmy mother, shesaid that she remembers it being more the mid to late 70s that this was purchased from Lanier at his pottery shopin Cleveland, GA. Face jugs were thought to have originated as a means of scaring children away from the contents (liquor, medicines) that may have been stored inside.
