    Description

    Washington, Adams, and Jefferson: Great Liverpool Pitcher picturing the three Revolutionary War leaders who would become the Nation's first three presidents. This transfer clearly originated during the early 1790s; the three men join together to hoist a pole with "Liberty" cap that was emblematic of the French Revolution. "Union to the People" above, "Civil and Religious Liberty to All Mankind" below. As is often found with this type of early pottery, a large crack starting at the original handle runs to the transfer on the front. We note also that the spout has been repaired. With minimal scratching to the transfer the scenes on both sides appear very bold against the cream color of the background. From the U. I. "Chick" and Cecilia Harris Collection.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
