Old Stoneware Jug with Hand Painted Log Cabin Scene Neat
This one of a kind, delightful, old stoneware jug has a hand painted log cabin scene that reminds us of days gone by! It is a fun piece that seems to draw one in as the landscape and cabin painted in a primitive ~ naïve style create a peaceful setting out in the country.
There is some paint loss on the jug but not enough to distort the wonderful scene that wraps all the way around this piece. The colors are neutral and pleasing and so is the bucolic setting that boasts a deciduous tree in the back of the jug along with two other trees off to the right. The cabin is tucked away in the forest flanked by greenery and a whitewashed picket fence probably painted by Tom Sawyer!
I added some Prairie Flowers that are included with the jug and lend soft whispers of mother nature’s bounty including autumn wheat, grasses, preserved Flax and white Tallow Berries. You can substitute these flowers and replace them with Christmas greens and berries for holiday decorating as well.
This jug is in good condition without any cracks or chips to report. The outside as well as the inside possess a luscious, dark brown slip glaze. The jug is not very large but will surely make a statement on your mantle, in your bedroom resting on a bright, sunny window ledge or will even grace a side table in style lending charming results. Enjoy!
Overall height including the flowers is 11” tall, jug itself measures 6 ½” tall, top opening is 2 ½” and the bottom measures almost 4 1/4.”
