    Description

    George Washington: Presidential Liverpool Jug.
    Produced in Liverpool during his presidency, prior to his death, this jug stands 9" tall and is slightly bulbous. One side has a great transfer of "Washington Securing Liberty to America", flanked by personifications of Liberty, Fame, Wisdom and Justice. Benjamin Franklin inscribes "America Independent 4 July 1776" in a book. An early version of the United States flag hovers over a map of the Eastern seaboard. The back side has a standard "Peace, Plenty and Independence" transfer. An eagle with fifteen stars appears below the spout. It has been restored and there are some areas where the overglaze has discolored, most notably the main transfer where there is some light pink color, as well as parts of the back side transfer and the bottom. Nice bright appearance.
