    Description

    Patriotic China: Map of the City of Washington Liverpool Jug. 9" pitcher with hand-painted gold highlights. The transfers include: "Plan of the City of Washington", a ship flying an American flag with 16 stars and an eagle perched on a cloud under the spout. The initials of the original owner, "C R S" appear below the eagle. There seems to be two small areas of restoration around the base design and a small firing blister on one of the goddesses pointing to the map; otherwise, a fine example. Washington, D.C. became the nation's capital in 1790. The transfer seen here was likely copied from Pierre L'Enfant's plan as published in 1792.
