Potter Holding Face Jug figurine produced in the United States in 2007. Face jugs were first made in the early 1800s by slave potters and others in the Edgefield district of South Carolina. Since the 19th century, face jugs have been a sideline of many traditional American potters of the Southeastern United States. Sitting on a tree stump, the rural potter is holding his latest creation in his lap, an extra-large face jug.
