We bought this North Carolina stoneware jar from a Savannah picker. Here are some tips for picking southern pottery that you can sell to us.

Based on the color and glaze this most likely came form North Carolina or Georgia. It has some stylistic features of Isaac Lefever (1831-1864) who was a Lincoln County potterr. The maker of this storage jar may have studied under Lefever. Here’s an example of a signed Lefever piece on the Mesda.org website.
