    John Hancock: Classic "Proscribed Patriots" Liverpool Creamware Jug, with Jefferson Quote. "Columbia's Sons inspired by Freedom's Flame Live on in the Annals of Immortal Fame." Above their portraits is a Washington memorial monument marked "GW" and "In Memory of Washington and the Proscribed Patriots of America." On reverse is a standing Revolutionary War soldier with flag, and legends including "Success to America whose Militia is better than Standing Armies."

    Under the spout is a bold Federal-style eagle with the quote: "Peace, Commerce, and honest Friendship with all Nations, Entangling Alliances with none-Jefferson, Anno domini 1802" (while Jefferson was president).

    The wonderful design elements were hand-colored, as is all too rarely seen on Liverpool pieces, creating a truly beautiful display presence. Pouring spout may be restored, but no other indications of restoration. Height 7.875". From the Scott W. Dolson Collection.
