Note: Ceramic vessels decorated with exaggerated facial features, usually on one face of the jug but multiple faces have also been used. Originated in the American South in the mid-19th century amongst enslaved and freed African potters. The production of face jugs continued into the 20th century with the development of African American potteries and with white potters adding face jugs to their offerings. Several potteries in southern U.S. states such as Georgia continue to make face jugs in the 21st century.
