I love face jugs..especially the ones with teeth.  I own several and am always on the hunt for more.  They tend to be quite expensive, so it is a quest for a deal..of course.

One theory is that these jugs were used as grave markers.  The face would be so ugly that it would scare off the devil and your soul would be kept safe.

North and South Carolina as well as Georgia  has produced some of the most wonderful potters who specialize in face jugs.  The Meadors family being one of the more prominent potter families. 

Headed to the Carolina's soon and you can bet I will searching everywhere for those crooked smiles with protruding pearly whites:-)
