Kentucky folk art stoneware pottery face vessel having an Albany slip glaze with curly hair parted in the middle, unglazed eyes and open mouth with scored teeth. Small unglazed circles in the center of each ear. Script signature to the underside of the base "E. Galloway/Paducah, KY" for Ernest H. Galloway (Kentucky, 1878-1910). 9 3/4" H and approx. 10" dia. Circa 1900 – 1910. Note: There is an E. H. Galloway, Pottery, listed in a 1904 Paducah, Kentucky city directory and an Ernest H. Galloway listed in the 1900 US Census whose occupation is listed as a potter and is again listed in the 1910 US Census as a "Jug Maker" in Paducah, Kentucky. Additional note: A similar face vessel is part of the Milwaukee Art Museum collection but imis-attributes the form to Galloway in the Zanesville, Ohio region. http://collection.mam.org/details.php?id=4809.
