    American Eagle: Fantastic Early 19th Century Paris Porcelain Lidded Urn. Among sophisticated collectors of early presidential and patriotic ceramics, by far the most esteemed and valued are these elegant French creations, intended for the American market (we know of a confirmed private sale of a pair of larger versions picturing Jackson and Lafayette for well over $100,000). This beauty sports a colorful Federal eagle with a streamer declaring "E Pluribus Unum" in its mouth. Condition in choice but for one small edge chip on the base, easily restored if one felt the need. Height 9.25". This urn is marked on the inside base "Nast à Paris", hand lettered in red.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
