Jugtown Pottery was founded by Jacques and Juliana Busbee in 1917 and is currently located near Seagrove, North Carolina in the community of Westmoore. The Busbees were committed to creating pottery in the North Carolina tradition, specializing in jugs, pitchers, and candlesticks in wood fired salt glaze and frogskin, and tablewares in green, blue, brown and gray.
Their glazes were made with wood ash, local clays, copper reds, greens and iron earth tones. The first known potter to work with the Busbee's at Jugtown was James H. Charlie Teague was the second known potter to be hired by the Busbees.Ben Owen was hired as the third known potter for Jugtown Pottery in 1923. Vernon Owen, grandson of J. Owen, still owns and runs Jugtown. The pottery remains in operation today, a testament to the enduring qualities of Jugtown's traditional North Carolina style. Condition of this vintage pottery tea set is EXCELLENT. There is a shallow flake on the spout of the teapot (see photo). All the pieces were rather crudely made in a primitive style, so they have some glaze imperfections, unglazed stilt marks, and minor roughness along the inside edge where the lids sit.
The finial of the teapot lid has several small firing cracks (see photo). Overall, this early Jugtown Pottery tea set looks fantastic and displays beautifully. It would make a fine addition to any collection.
