Early 20th century, likely South Carolina origin and attributed to Guy Daugherty. Having albany glaze with china teeth and exhibiting well-molded facial features. H4 1/8" Note: Daugherty was an itinerant pottery for much of his life. He learned the trade from his father Daniel Boone Daugherty who was a potter in Texas. Guy is noted predominantly for his work in Bethune, South Carolina where he spent much of his late life until moving to upstate New York. It is important however to recognize that he potted with the Baynham family in the Edgefield District of South Carolina before moving to Bethune. His rendition of face jugs is perhaps derived from his time working in that region. There are only a handful of Daugherty attributable face jugs that exist today and but one signed example. This would indicate that it was perhaps a rare occurrence that he chose to create such a form or perhaps they were all created in the same firing by special order. Nonetheless the form is important and original to his hand.
