So this one is a total mystery to me. I grabbed this when I saw it at an Estate Sale Lot that came into Habitat for Humanity here in Palm Springs, CA. At first I thought I kind of knew what I had but got home and realized the words on this "Folk Art Grotesque Face Jug" were not actually words at all that I could find in any language so far. I've tried Native American, English, and Spanish. The shape of the jug which is also somewhat of a mystery to me allows it to stand upright with ought an actual fly bottom surface. Even the very base has a slightly rounded curve.
The "y"'s Are all backwards in the lettering and the words are..
It appears some may be purposely capitalized but hard to tell.
The jug measures approx a foot tall and a foot at its widest point.
Made from a heavy Clay or Terra-cotta.
No other marks I can find.
ANYONE have a clue?
