Clementine Hunter Pecan Picking Mug

$ 38.00

Clementine Hunter lived on Melrose Plantation in central Louisiana for most of her life. The plantation had large pecan orchards, and in this scene Clementine captured the work of threshing the trees and picking up the pecans that fell from the trees. Clementine depicts a teenager hanging upside down to shake the trees so the pecans could fall to the ground for the ladies to pick up and place in their buckets. Each 14 ounce ceramic mug is hand-painted and no two are exactly alike. With each piece purchased, a percentage of the proceeds will go toward preservation and interpretation of the Clementine Hunter House at Melrose Plantation, a National Historical Landmark.
