    Washington and Franklin: Magnificent Large Liverpool Punch Bowl Picture in Both. In the bottom of the bowl is a wonderful hand-colored transfer of a warship, with cannons protruding and flying a vivid red, white, and blue American flag. Around the sides are four transfers: 1) an uncommon portrait of Washington on horseback. Below: "His Excellency General George Washington. Marshal of France, Commander in chief of all the North American Continental Forces."; 2) a portrait of Franklin, with his name and 1706 birth date below; 3) a scene from an American officer, presumably Washington, with his foot on the British Lion, while a British ship sails away; and 4) a fine federal eagle with shield. The bowl is in beautiful display condition. A couple of fine cracks have been professionally restored and are now undetectable to the naked eye. But there was no significant pre-restoration damage and the bowl now presents in near-mint condition. Diameter 11", height 4.75".
