This is a photo of a pottery spittoon purchased in the late 1970's or early 1980's by Thomas Perry Hamm
and given to his son, Leonard David Hamm. Dimensionally, it is about 7 inches in diameter and 4 to 5
inches tall. It is believed to have been made by the Miller family, who still operate a pottery business in the
Sprott area -- now located a couple of miles north of Heiberger, Alabama on Alabama Highway 5.
