Storage jar (about 30 gallons), alkaline glaze
Aiken County, S.C., July 4, 1859
The jar lost most of its glaze and suffered other damage after years of exposure to the elements on a farm in Greene County, Georgia. Such jars may have been wagoned and sold to east Georgia plantations soon after they were made.
"The fourth of July is Surely come
to blow the fife and beat the drum."
