'sin Eater' A Very Creepy Cool Folk Art Face Jug By Ron Dahline

'Sin Eater' A very creepy face jug by Ron Dahline

When I was a small child our family use to quite often go to the local drive in theater. One movie in paticular that I think was based on a Edger Allen Poe story was about the 'sin eaters' and it gave me nightmares for years. If it is true that southern face jugs were made to scare certain folks away from the booze then I think this one will do the trick.


Sin-eater From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Not to be confused with the '80s pop singer Sinitta.

The term sin-eater refers to a person who, through ritual means, would take on by means of food and drink the sins of a household, often because of a recent death, thus absolving the soul and allowing that person to rest in peace. In the study of folklore sin-eating is considered a form of religious magic.

This ritual is said to have been practised in parts of England and Scotland, and allegedly survived until the late 19th or early 20th century in Wales and the adjoining Welsh Marches of Shropshire and Herefordshire, as well as certain portions of Appalachia in America (documented in the Foxfire cultural history series). Traditionally, it was performed by a beggar, and certain villages maintained their own sin-eaters. They would be brought to the dying person's bedside, where a relative would place a crust of bread on the breast of the dying and pass a bowl of ale to him over the corpse. After praying or reciting the ritual, he would then drink and remove the bread from the breast and eat it, the act of which would remove the sin from the dying person and take it into himself.[

This face jug stands just shy of 10 inches tall, by 5 inches ear to ear and holds 46 ounces of what ever floats your boat (or sinks it)

Note: The snake cork is just for show, I had it laying around and thought it looked cool.
