    Desirable, Large Liverpool Creamware Pitcher, c.1798, With Map Of The Planned New Capital At Washington
    Two maidens unfurl a large map, entitled, "Plan of the City of Washington." Under the spout is a marvelous heraldic eagle, and the reverse features evocative images of "Peace, Plenty, and Independence." Eagle, cannon, flag, Miss Liberty, a sheath of weapons, etc. Ancient paper label on bottom describes original family ownership of the piece. Condition is remarkably original, with virtually intact gold-leaf decoration overall. Color is slightly, evenly toned, and there are a few utterly trivial, very tiny chips on top lip and bottom edge. Lower portion of handle seems to be resorted, otherwise an exceptionally original Liverpool pitcher. Quite massive, height 9 1/4".
