Turkey Merck No. 1 Snake / Face Jug -- Southern Folk Pottery:
Turkey Merck No 1 snake/face jug-southern folk pottery About Five years ago, my dad, who collects pottery, like me, gave me this 13 inch tall, fabulous mint, No. 1 snake face jug by Gainesville, Georgia's Kevin "Turkey" Merck. for my collection. It is so marked and signed on bottom 2008 and No 1. In fact, I believe Kevin told Dad this was his first and last one like this. It is so hard to sell this one, but necessary needed items must come first. This piece is so very heavy and features a fabulous rattlesnake about two inches wide and deep, and about three feet long.. Big! The snake scales are so detail as is the color variations on the snake's skin. Of course, the very best of faces by Kevin and awesome glaze. It is a piece to be given serious consideration in picking it up locally. The rattles are exposed and would be a shame to break. If the winner so desires, I will double box, using new UPS boxes and bubble wrap and peanuts to protect it and ship it UPS ground. It ways 13 lbs and to ship like it needs to be, shipping and packaging will be $55.00 ( probably more close to $70 but I can help pay some difference ). Thanks for looking!
