    Success to the Sail Makers.

    George Washington: Liverpool Jug. 9.5" pitcher with transfer of Washington, Franklin, Lady Liberty and two goddesses, viewing a map of the newly freed colonies (Fame hovers above, sounding the trumpet and holding a laurel wreath labeled "Washington"). The other side shows three workers, captioned "Success To The Sail Makers". A wreath with the owner's initials, "J H", appears below the spout as does a lady representing "Hope". This transfer of Washington was likely made during his lifetime. We note a few faint hairlines and spider cracks in the body, of no importance. We suspect it may have some high-quality restoration, but cannot pinpoint it with any certainty.

    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.
