Storage Jar

Contact The Charleston Museum for image use and credit instructions.


Storage jar created by enslaved potter David Drake (Dave the Potter), designed with four crock handles circumventing the top section directly below the rolled rim. Drake finished the jar with a green-tinted alkaline glaze inside and out. The date is found below one handle with a half-arc or semicircle marked below the other handle. It is currently on exhibit in the Museum's First Hall.
