    George Washington: Majolica and Doulton Pitchers. This lot includes two very fine pieces of English earthenware produced for American exhibitions. The first is a 5" Majolica pitcher with portraits of Washington and Lincoln on either side. It has a slightly iridescent glaze. Aside from a small chip on the lip, near the handle, it appears to be in perfect condition. The registry mark indicates a date of April 19, 1876. The other item is a 7.25" pitcher marked "Doulton Lambeth England" with raised decorations of an eagle and flags, George Washington and Christopher Columbus. It is inscribed "World's Columbian Exposition 1893." It has one chip on the lip on the Columbus side and a very tight spider crack in the base.
