    George Washington: Circa 1824 Staffordshire Pitcher. Lafayette's 1824/1825 tour of the United States spawned many commemorative souvenirs, including this 5" pitcher. It has portraits of "Washington His Country's Father" and "Fayette The Nation's Guest." It also says on the neck: "In Commemoration of the Visit of Genl. La Fayette to the U.S. of America in the Year 1824" along with an appropriate quote above Washington's portrait. It was produced by Richard Hall & Son whose name appears beneath an eagle below the spout, inscribed "Republicans Are Not Always Ungrateful." Although these have been reproduced, this is an original in excellent condition. The base has the sticker of antique dealer John Howard.

    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.
