    Description

    George Washington: "Long Live the President" Liverpool Tankard. Universally considered to be the most desirable Washington transfer. Interestingly, it seems to have been used mostly on tankards- in general a rarer form- than on pitchers. But in forty+ years we have not seen more than a half-dozen examples. There has been some museum-grade restoration, mostly in the top left quadrant of the portrait and part of the caption balloons. Measures 6" tall. The display condition is excellent and it presents in near-mint condition. One of the nicest early presidential display pieces.
    From the David & Janice Frent Collection

    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.
