Heh heh. Looks more like Voldemort.

Anyway, check out Burlon Craig, who produced very similar folk art pieces in North Carolina, and is highly regarded.

Could well be a copy of one of these southern USA monkey jars. This one sold for $50k

No, they are the US equivalent of our Toby jugs and highly collectible, although there are a lot of potters making them, and have made them over the 19th-21stCenturies so it depends on the name
