DEVIL Sewer Pipe Sewer Tile End of the Day Folk Art Devil 19th Century Antique

A very old folk art devil missing his horns.  This piece has rolled around and been kicked for a century!  Not only are the horns broken off, but every "high point" has been worn off and the glaze missing.  The author knows of no more than four examples of sewer tile pottery of the devil and all have lost their horns.  It is interesting to consider the devil is a common motif of face jug makers past and present...but few sewer tile pieces exist.  

19th Century Folk Art Sewer Tile Devil c. 1890 - 1920.  Collection Jim Linderman
