    FINE LIVERPOOL PITCHER DEPICTING GEORGE WASHINGTON AS PRESIDENT. As with the example in our June sale, the portrait transfer on this pitcher can be conclusively dated to the time of Washington’s Presidency: The ribbons which surround his portrait bear the names of the states. Kentucky (admitted 1792) is listed, but Tennessee (admitted 1796) is not. The portrait transfer is an especially nice one, with a large image flanked by figures of Justice and Liberty, with his name above. A cap labeled "Liberty" on a pole and an American flag contribute to the imagery. The reverse side is also appealing, with the "Peace, Plenty and Independence" slogan and fine imagery, including cannon, flag and a very "folk-arty" American eagle. This is a rather large size pitcher as these go, height 9." Condition is beautiful but for the often-seen professional restoration to the pouring spout. For someone who wishes a fine, representative display item from the actual days of Washington’s presidency, this is a perfect choice. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
