    Magnificent, Huge Liverpool Pitcher In Probably Unique Style
    This massive piece weighs nearly four pounds, and makes a powerful statement as a display item. The style is unique to our experience. We consulted a top Liverpool collector with decades of experience, and it is the only one made this way which he has ever seen. The devices appear as inset medallions, while the main surface is "pebbled" by the spreading of a mix of ground-up pottery chips evenly over the entire area (rather reminiscent of some textured ceilings). The effect is beautiful and attention-getting; one cannot help wondering why the technique was not more frequently employed. At the top are two Chinese-style pastoral scenes, while the three "medallions" contain a classic, Federal style heraldic eagle and two warships. Some superb minor restoration is not of consequence. Formerly in the legendary Paul Richards Collection, and obtained privately before that incredible collection went to auction. A very special opportunity for the advanced Liverpool collector, or just someone with a good aesthetic eye who wants the best! Height 10 1/4", but bulbous form and heavy mass make it seem even larger.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
