    Washington, Adams et al: "Emblem of America" Liverpool Pitcher. 8" tall Liverpool jug with transfer of a three-masted ship flying an American flag with sixteen stars on one side (one star hidden from view). The other side has an allegorical transfer titled "An Emblem of America" depicting Lady Liberty, a sixteen star flag, two Native Americans and seven small portraits of famous figures. These include Columbus, Amerigo Vespucci, Sir Walter Raleigh, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, John Adams and an unnamed celebrity. A sticker on the bottom from Harry Eberhardt & Son of Philadelphia indicates the piece was cleaned and restored many years ago. It appears the top third was broken off and reattached, ditto the handle. Both transfers are strong. It displays well in spite of the faults. Based on the number of stars, it is circa 1796-1803. Having Washington & Adams together on one piece is pretty nice!
