    Description

    George Washington: Rare Herculaneum Liverpool Pitcher. 7 3/4" pitcher with oval transfer portrait of Washington below the spout. Hand-painted black banding with dot-and-oval decoration. Impressed "Herculaneum" in the base. Some expert restoration to shallow chips inside the rim, not visibly from the front. Additional restoration to a vertical hairline on one side. Displays in near-mint condition. The transfer is unbelievably sharp and detailed. It matches oval plaques of Washington and Jefferson produced in the 1800-1808 period. These are much rarer than most pre-1800 jugs produced in the Liverpool region. A very handsome piece.
