 Jugs with Two Handles on the Same Side

The green jug on the left came from theSwan family on Sand Mountain.  

E.E. McPhenron was married to Sarah Swan.

        We have seen an identical jug with "S. A. McPherson" written on the side. This jug is now in the collection of the Birmingham Museum of Art. Based on the handle terminals and the writing on the signed Arch McPherson pieces we believe Arch McPherson made that jug for his daughter in law Sarah McPherson.
