    Description

    George Washington: A Dramatic Large Liverpool Creamware Pitcher with Hand-Colored Transfers. This is one of the few Washington transfers that can be authoritatively dated to his term as President, since the chain of state links around his portrait includes Kentucky (admitted 1792), but not Tennessee (admitted 1796). This is the first color example of this transfer we have ever encountered, and it is in great condition with some indications of skilled professional repair. Federal-style eagle below the pouring spout and sailing vessel flying an American flag on the reverse side. A smaller example with black and white coloration is pictured in Arthur Schlesinger's Running for President: The Candidates and Their Images. 1789-1896, p. 13.
