A face vessel from the Southeast, perhaps from my home state, Georgia. I know it's older -- 1940s? Chocolate colored and just 7 inches tall.
ADDENDUM: From John Burrison, author of Brothers in Clay: "Indeed, a very nice example, nicely sculpted, glazed with Albany slip (post-1870s). I do suspect it’s from GA but don’t recognize the maker. Could be a bit older than 1940s, as early as 1920s (but excellent condition suggests later). Gillsville (Hall Co.) and Crawford Co. (near Macon) are most likely places of origin; neck and handle details are more like the latter (and Eddie Averett was making face jugs there in 1920s)."
