Large East Tennessee redware pottery storage jar, lead glaze body with manganese stripe decoration, sine wave incising around upper shoulder, extruded or pulled smooth handles, attributed to Sullivan Co., Tennessee or Southwest Virginia. For a similar example of a large decorated jar, refer to the article, “Earthenware Potters Along the Great Road in Virginia and Tennessee”, J. Roderick Moore, Antiques Magazine, September 1983, p. 532, plate III. Condition: Overall very good condition with chips to one side of the rim, minor chips to base. 15″ Height. Mid 19th century. Note – recognition of the prolific Cain pottery in East Tennessee was noted in published resources as early as 1909, where Oliver Taylor in “Historic Sullivan” states, “Another factory which received national attention was the Cain pottery, located at Emanuel Church, and owned by two brothers, William M. and Abe Cain . . . It was operated about 1840 and, among other wares, souvenir jugs were made, many of which are still in existence.” (Research courtesy Carole Wahler.)
