Mid 19th century. Note: Thomas J. Myers is listed in the 1850 census as a potter in Smyth County, Virginia. A jar shown in the 2011 Tennessee Turned – Earthenware and Stoneware Made in East Tennessee 1800-1900 exhibit (curated by Dr. Carole Wahler at the East Tennessee Historical Society) also had the initials T.I.M. impressed behind the top left handle.Â
