We are delighted that the person that purchased this piece of pottery from us was acheived a substancial profit at Brunks Auction in Ashville, NC.
This is a small pitcher made in the form of a face. Face jugs are highly collected and this piece is in the same vein of face vessles from Edgefield South Carolina (SC). If you've downloaded our value guide you'll recognize the form. Below I'm attaching the condition report and provenence that we provided to the buyer. It's a great example of why provenance is important.
Some of you that are reading this have sold us pottery. We are very fond of all southern pottery; we are especially eager South Carolina Pottery buyers. If you want to sell antique pottery we are always happy to talk. Being antique pottery buyers we like primitive pottey as well as well crafted modern pottery and art pottery. Edgefield pottery like this is in a special category because of the history of pottery making in Edgefield SC.
