The origins of the face jug is said to be a way in which the jugs were made to be childproof. The theory is that the ugly face on the side of the jug would be scary enough to keep the children out of the jug and away from the contents.

The handmade nature of these jugs gives them even greater appeal than if they were obviously rolled off an assembly line. Each one has its own characteristics that some may find appealing or at least, interesting. No matter why you might find these pottery jugs to fit your home’s design they will create a point of interest in the room if they are positioned prominently.

Some of the early face jugs were created with amazing attention to detail with fine features inscribed onto the sides of the jugs to give them personality and wider appeal. They may not always have featured the recognizable ugly face but other designs such as lizards, snakes and spiders.
