W.D. Suggs Pottery 6 gallon Stoneware Butter Churn.
The white glaze was introduced around 1900-1910.
Suggs Pottery was located in Smithville, Mississippi in the early 1900s through 1956.
The Pottery shop was known locally as the Jug Shop.
There are some original imperfections of the making.
The lid fits the churn but I am not sure that it is original to the churn.
It is approximately 18 inches tall.
Approximately 9 1/2" at the base.
Approximately 9" at the top of the rim.
Approximately 7 1/2" opening of the churn.
Approximately 36" around the outside of the churn at the largest point without the handle.
Handle is the original handle.
Needs a good cleaning.
This churn came from the estate of a family that lived in Smithville, Mississippi at the time of this pottery being in operation.
The 6 gallon size churn is larger than most of the churns. It is also heavy.
This is a used item. .
