    Description

    Success to America.

    George Washington: Liverpool Pitcher. 7.5" pitcher with transfers of George Washington flanked by three goddesses and a cherub bestowing a crown of stars, a wreath labeled "Success to America." under the spout, and a scene showing Washington (we believe) subduing the British lion, gesturing for the red coats to depart our shores, captioned: "By Virtue and Valour, We Have Freed Our Country, Extended Our Commerce and Laid the Foundations of a Great Empire." This seems to be a taunt to the British, saying that not only have you lost the colonies, but we're going to build an empire of our own and give you guys a run for your money! Premature, but prescient! Circa 1795. Mint condition. A beauty!

    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.
