JAS Pottery

by Brian Benson
(Acworth, GA)

My in-laws have a pot that they use to cook beans in (for years). I've anticipated that my wife and her sister could come to blows once it comes to who inherits it. Well, we found one at a thrift store that may fix that, but we're not sure if it is safe to cook with. The mark on the bottom looks like JAS to me, but the script could be UAS - or I could be completely wrong. Could you identify the mark and, more importantly, tell us if it is safe to cook with. Perhaps I should send a picture in of the old one as well. I've always felt they were all crazy anyway, perhaps that's the reason. I grew up without a bean pot, so I don't have an excuse... Thanks, Brian

The saga continues... NEW

Well, hello! It's been quite a long time since this post was begun, but I just happened upon a lovely mint-colored covered pot (different than the one pictured in the OP) with the same JAS/UAS marking on the bottom. While I love a good mystery, I hate not knowing the answer! Anyone ever find out information on the maker?

I have a bean pot with the same mark that I am trying to identify. Did you get any info?
