    Description

    Rare Liverpool Creamware Pitcher Showing Washington As President
    Image of "Washington crowned with laurels by (Lady) Liberty," surrounded by a chain of links for each state. Includes Kentucky, but not Tennessee, which would date this transfer between 1792 and 1796. Reverse features similar chain with state names, surrounding poem to "O Liberty Thou Goddess." A very scarce and desirable design. Slater's Americana sold a similar example with this transfer in their June 2003 auction, where it fetched $5527 with buyer's premium. Appearance is superb; this piece presents in near-mint condition, and does not reveal any repairs or restoration under black light. However, the previous owner indicates that it has had some highly professional repair. Height 8 1/2".
